Episode 391: PREMIUM – 3 studies that will leave you short of breath

In episode 391, Mike and James have yet again a PREMIUM moment that will leave you short of breath. We go over 2 new studies that looked at asthma action plans and does increasing doses of inhaled corticosteroids work. In the last study we go over a comparison of vaginal estradiol, vaginal moisturizer or placebo for perimenopausal vulvovaginal symptoms, and placebo ends up working as well as anything else.

Episode 390: A shared-decision is the only outcome that matters in EBP

In episode 390, James and Mike have a discussion about how a shared-decision may be the only real outcome to measure if one is doing, or evaluating, evidence-based practice. Do our arguments convince you? Have we missed something important? Is this the best podcast ever on shared-decision making? Do you think we should be locked up? We would love feedback.
