DRUG TREATMENT FOR CHRONIC DISEASES ARE NEVER ENOUGH
Majid Ali, M.D.
The S0-Called Evidence-based Medicine Is Uncritical Thinking.
Everyone Is A Unique Individual.
The term evidence-based medicine has puzzled me for decades. How can the main body of doctors not see the evident flaw in this doctrine?
If we accept that everyone is a unique individual, then what drugs might work for some people cannot work for everyone. So common sense tells us that what passes for evidence-based medicine in chronic disease cannot be accepted as valid.
Here Is What AMA Says About Evidence-Based Medicine
Evidence-based care has been defined as “the conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients.”1 However, until now, most treatments have been designed with a “one-size-fits-all” approach: useful for some patients but not helpful or even harmful for others.2 Analyses of clinical trials generally focus on summarizing overall average treatment effects without more deliberate investigation of which patients actually benefit. For example, if the number needed to treat using a new therapy is 50, then 50 individuals need to receive this treatment for 1 individual to benefit. But what characterizes that benefiting individual? Therapies can also both help and harm, successfully improving some outcomes while also placing patients at increased risk for other adverse events.
Therapies can also both help and harm, successfully improving some outcomes while also placing patients at increased risk for other adverse events. These words are worth repeating.
