Tuesday 17 August (via Zoom) at 2pm

Two bars of chocolate a day can slash the risk of heart attack and stroke.....really?

The speaker, Dr Lynda Ware, explores what Evidence-Based Medicine is all about and why it is important. She will give examples of where disasters have happened through lack of evidence and how drug licensing laws help ensure that treatments are safe and effective. She will present media headlines and encourage critical thinking (i.e. a healthy dose of scepticism) to look behind what we are being told. She will talk a little about Cochrane UK and give an example of a Cochrane review. She will also give examples of where trustworthy, evidence-based health advice can be found.
