StATS: Putting a human face on Evidence Based Medicine (June 20, 2006)

A correspondent (BD) on the Evidence Based Health email discussion group pointed out the following web site:

The author of this website, Len Gibbs, is a prominent expert in Evidence Based Medicine. He was recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of prostate cancer. He has some advice about how patients like him should proactively research information about medicine that is relevant to their own lives. I've only read a bit of this so far, but it is both very compelling and very instructive.
