#FOAMed of the Week: Pseudoaxioms and Dogmalysis, from SMACC15, Via ICN

Another talk from SMACC Chicago, this time from David Newman covering some favourite subjects.  Reminding us why we should know the evidence behind medical lore (and remain sceptical of wannabe new medical lore). Make sure you listen 'til the end, to include how medical students and junior doctors should handle #FOAMed Dogmalysis........

He and his wife, Ashley Shreaves, produced a number of brilliant podcasts on critical appraisal and EBM on SMART-EM which played a huge part in my passing my FRCEM.  

He also started the EBM website theNNT which produces EBM summaries on a variety of topics and is well worth checking out once you've got your basic stats in your head. 

Finally please listen to the monthly podcast Drs Newman and Shreaves produce for the Annals of Emergency Medicine Audio Summary. It's easy (and entertaining) listening and helps keep you up to date with latest publications.
