Better evidence for better healthcare - a CauseHealth discussion

The “Better Evidence for Better Healthcare Manifesto” initiative was recently launched by the Oxford Centre for Evidence Based Medicine (CEBM) in collaboration with the British Medical Journal (BMJ). As a parallel contribution to this initiative, CauseHealth is going to compose a list of measures that in our view need to be implemented if we want to have a better, long lasting healthcare.

The manifesto is motivated by a series of problems and blind spots in the implementation of EBM: lack of high quality evidence, systematic research errors, under-reporting of harm, insufficient inclusion of patient’s priorities are some of the issues named by the Manifesto’s promoters. The purpose of the initiative is to spot what could be changed and how, in order to improve the current situation.

In this blog series, the CauseHealth collaborators try to answer the question: “What do we need to create effective long-term changes for better healthcare?”
