Episode 378: Antidepressants – lots of useful data but many important questions remain

In episode 378, James, Tina and Mike go over the latest antidepressant meta-analysis from the Lancet. We talk about the fact that antidepressants do work, but importantly, what does “work” mean. Most importantly, we talk about what questions about antidepressants are not answered by this meta-analysis. At the end we put everything (to do with antidepressants) into its proper context.

Episode 377: Getting higher than a kite with medical cannabinoid evidence – PART IV

In episode 377, Mike and James finally get to the end of looking at all the available cannabinoid evidence and we continue to discuss how the evidence could be used in the context of a shared-decision making process.

Episode 376: Getting higher than a kite with medical cannabinoid evidence – PART III

In episode 376, Mike and James take all the best available evidence around cannabinoid use and put the evidence into the concept of a shared-decision making guideline. Shocking as it may seem, shared-decision making is rarely a part of most guidelines but we show how valuable it can be to keep this concept in focus when it comes to giving suggestions for the use of many treatments.
