The Best Science (BS) Medicine Podcast is a weekly presentation where practitioners can get evidence-based drug therapy content that is practical, entertaining and promotes healthy scepticism. In essence, we are the Medication Mythbusters. We present information that is useful and relevant to physicians, pharmacists, nurses, physician assistants and other health professionals, and that can easily be incorporated into day-to-day practice. The podcast is presented by Dr. James McCormack, Professor in the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of British Columbia and Dr Michael Allan, Associate Professor in the Department of Family Practice at the University of Alberta.

    Episode 390: A shared-decision is the only outcome that matters in EBP

    In episode 390, James and Mike have a discussion about how a shared-decision may be the only real outcome to measure if one is doing, or evaluating, evidence-based practice. Do our arguments convince you? Have we missed something important? Is this the best podcast ever on shared-decision making? Do you think we should be locked up? We would love feedback. Show notes
