Episode 262: Televised medical talk shows – the recommendations and the evidence

In episode 262, Tina, Mike and James discuss the ins and outs of their new BMJ paper on televised medical talk shows.  TMJ and the gang did a thorough investigation of the recommendations made by two nationally televised medical talk shows (The Dr Oz Show and The Doctors). We looked at what specifically these shows recommended and what was the evidence behind these recommendations – in other words how believable were their recommendations. Have a listen, go read the paper and you’ll be armed with the best available evidence around the recommendations made by these shows.
