Episode 267: PREMIUM – Guidelines, blood pressure and antiplatelets

In episode 267, James and Mike finally get to the first PREMIUM podcast of 2015 – and boy is it something. We discuss a new paper put out by the Edmonton gang on who actually contributes to primary care guidelines, we talk about a new systematic review of mild hypertension treatment, and finally discuss a NEJM article on the duration of dual antiplatelets. At the end we both agree this podcast was really something.
