Episode 50: More useful clinical trials – with a gentler touch

In episode 50, we talk about 4 more clinical trials that might help you in your practice. We cover topics ranging from fever control with acetaminophen or ibuprofen, injections for rotator cuff injuries, diabetes, and osteoarthritis. Mike and James finally bring in a much needed female flavour to the show, by asking Dr. Tina Korownyk to help out with the evaluation of these studies. Unfortunately we quickly realise that the past 49 shows have, much to our chagrin, lacked any significant sex appeal.
