Medicina basada en l'eminència

El 1999 ja sortia al BMJ el terme:
Eminence based medicine—The more senior the colleague, the less importance he or she placed on the need for anything as mundane as evidence Experience, it seems, is worth any amount of evidence. These colleagues have a touching faith in clinical experience, which has been defined as “making the same mistakes with increasing confidence over an impressive number of years.”7 The eminent physician's white hair and balding pate are called the “halo” effect.
 Ara l'Incidental Economist el manlleva tot comentant el cribratge de lípids en nens. Feu-hi un cop d'ull.

PS. "El metge com a narrador d'històries". Bon article a Annals de Medicina.
