There’s a fascinating discussion starting up on hifa2015 ( Health Information For All by 2015 ) on whether medical librarians and information providers are ” put in an awkward position ” by Evidence Based Medicine ” ( systematic reviews, etc. ), or whether they are , on the contrary , empowered by it.
This follows – and refers to- a recent correspondence on hifa2015 as to whether EBM is all it’s cracked up to be.
What do you think ? Of course, in the first instance, if you want to join in the debate you must email HIFA2015@dgroups.org but maybe afterwards tell me if you’d like to post something on Phi’s blog as well.
