Healthcare Triage covers systematic reviews:
You’ve probably heard of “evidence-based medicine”. It’s the idea that we practice based on research and data. There’s another way of practicing called “eminence-based medicine”. It’s the idea that we listen to the person who’s been around the longest or who has somehow managed to be labelled the expert.
It used to be that such a person would periodically get to write a review article in some journal, and that would be how everyone learned what to do in medicine. That’s a problem. We’ve got a solution. Systematic reviews!
