VIDEO: Bridge Over Diagnosis - a parody of Bridge Over Troubled Water

Another great video from the talented and goofy Dr. James McCormack (@medmyths) of Best Science Medicine Podcast fame.

Bridge Over Diagnosis - a parody of the Simon and Garfunkel classic Bridge Over Troubled Water. Overdiagnosis is an important health care issue and hopefully this video highlights a number of the issues around this important problem.

If you like this, don't forget to see James' (in my mind) even more catchy and fun Choosing Wisely video parody of Pharell Williams' "Happy"


Choosing Wisely - a catchy music video by James McCormack

"It might seem crazy . . . Less is More can often be the Best Way."

Dr James McCormack, co-host of the Best Science (BS) Medicine Podcast at Therapeutics Education Collaboration, created this video. It's a parody of the Pharrell Williams song "Happy," adapted to promote the concepts of evidence-based medicine, shared decision making and common sense to healthcare providers and patients.

The catchy tune highlights some suggestions from the Choosing Wisely campaign (US) and the Choosing Wisely Canada recommendations as well as ideas for using your common sense to be healthy!

Check out the video, show it to your doctor or patients, and start a healthy Less IS More conversation.

James and I will be doing a talk to the UBC Medical students this fall; I only hope we can be half as engaging. Great work, James!
