BS Medicine

PEER hosts a weekly podcast (BS Medicine) that has become quite popular, being in the top five medical podcasts despite being principally for primary care providers (and the general public).

Presented primarily by James McCormack and Mike Allan, the overriding messages are:

  1. Be familiar with the evidence (not critical appraisal) for the conditions you treat,
  2. Start with low doses unless the condition is life-threatening,
  3. Engage patients in shared-informed decision-making by discussing with them their risk without treatment, their risk with treatment, and any potential adverse effects including cost.
