Editorial with evidence-based approach

Thought you should see the format of On TraQ from the get-go. The style will be informal and the content will reflect whatever's on my mind.

If you are interested evidence-based medicine and want a transfusion-related example of how to approach analysing papers critically, this editorial is a keeper:
Do transfusions get to the heart of the matter? Hébert PC, Fergusson DA. JAMA 2004;292:1610-2.

The editorial is worth it for what it shows about how to evaluate the literature. Even if you don't normally have access to JAMA, make the effort and find out how you can get copies of journal articles. Ask your medical director or hospital librarian. It will be a good exercise in professional development/continuing education.
