More "Less is More"!
Dr Bill Cayley Jr has started a Wordpress Blog, "Less is More EBM" to review studies that explore situations in which less involved/invasive/expensive/difficult/novel/etc. care is actually best for patients.
He writes, "This index is currently a personal (and extremely part-time!) project aiming to catalog literature documenting when “less is more” in a searchable and accessible format." It has just started, but there are already insights on papers about overuse of arthroscopy, the best treatment for paediatric upper respiratory infection, and creative solutions for low resource areas (eg. mosquito nets instead of mesh for hernia repair).
It's great to see interest booming. More people are writing books and blogs, talking at conferences, changing the care they deliver, and asking questions of their health care provider. The movement – still known by many names, a few of which are highlighted in the glossary – is growing!
If you are particularly interested in blogs, look at the left sidebar column, and under 'Similar Blogs' you'll find others writing about similar issues as you'll find on this site. Check 'em out!
