Precision Evidence

Precision Evidence

At the Precision Evidence Podcast, we go beyond the abstract of medical papers to find medical research relevant and meaningful to patients and healthcare professionals and separate the news from the fake news in medicine. Finding, evaluating, and using clinical trials with relevant outcomes for patients and Evidence-Based Medicine is the focus of the podcast’s analysis of medical papers, discussions, and interviews with stakeholders. Hosted by Dr. Kim Kristiansen, M.D., and JG Staal.
