JC: Journal club book for 2019-2020 published. #FOAMed

We’re delighted to publish the annual St Emlyn’s critical appraisal book this week. It’s a collection of our best critical appraisal blogs and covers over 30 papers that we have found to be interesting, challenging, useful or just a bit odd.

You can download a pdf of the book from our Research gate site here. This should work on most readers.

You can download an .epub file here that works across a range of digital readers.

It’s possible that you will have seen some of the content before as an avid blog reader, but we hope that a reminder will be useful. We’d also ask you to share it with other people in your department and networks. Not everyone will visit St Emlyn’s on a regular basis and so a collection of critical appraisals may be a way of engaging colleagues in evidence based medicine.

As with all aspects of medicine we would ask you to remain skeptical of our views. Whilst we think that we have a pretty good grasp of medical education and EBM there will always be controversies and disagreements. As an example, this year was notable for the publication of the CRASH-3 trial which caused quite a stir in the #FOAMed world. We’d ask you to read our review, but also to check out the reviews of our friends and colleagues such as Ken Milne, Salim Rezzaie and Justin Morgenstern who have a different take on the evidence.

The bottom line for all of us here at St Emlyn’s is that EBM is a discussion where the evidence forms a component of the decision making process. As clinicians we will always be tasked with determining how evidence fits into the clinical conundrum before us. Sometimes the evidence will be overwhelming as with DC shocks in VF. In many, if not most other situations the clinician must exercise judgement in coming to a conclusion.

We hope you find it useful. Please forward copies to whoever you think might find it helpful
