abstract

  • In this issue, Nelson and colleagues found essentially no studies of reasonable quality supporting specific effective intervention for family violence. In light of the evidence, why should clinicians screen for a disease for which there are no proven effective interventions? Because for some conditions that clinicians regularly encounter, robotic devotion to evidence-based medicine places us at risk of dehumanizing certain aspects of doctoring.
