Episode Info:

There is a lot of knowledge out there. Whats the bottom line? Alright. You’ve decided to specialise in some fantastically sexy area of medicine. You need to learn the craft. You need to get through each night shift. You need to stay alive. You need to maintain your relationship with your man/woman/dog/cat/ mother/ father/ children...... You also need to know about a million research papers that were done over the last 30 years. The guys you are working with have been absorbing this knowledge over years. They may even have been involved in the studies. Worse still the woman that is examining you for your Fellowship/Board may have written that crazy bit of evidence based medicine. Not everyone gets to do a Masters of Public Health or a Epidemiology/Biostats qualification so where do you start? What does this study mean? Is there some biostats faux pas that makes this paper useful only for personal hygiene? What is the “Bottom Line”? The good news is that there often is a bottom line and a bunch of your peers (some pretty cool peers like Steve Mathieu, Celia Bradford, Duncan Chambler and Charlotte Summers) have set up the snappily named www.thebottomline.org.uk (It does exactly what it says on the tin.) Steve Mathieu @stevemathieu75 is a very likeable chap. We had a good giggle and the conversation slipped sideways (as usual) into other FOAMed issues, why podcasting is a funny beast, theres a significant bit of bro-love for Scott Weingart and we deal with our own insecurities about not being that pretty. A big shout out to a #FOAMed hero of mine Mark Crislip the man that has now produced over 900 Gobbets’o’pus! Look out for Dr Crislip, and any gobbets associated with him, on iTunes and many other places on the “interweb”. (Prepare thyself for weirdness.) www.thebottomline.org.ukhttp://www.wessexics.comwww.emcrit.org
