Putting Dogmas of Cardiology to the Test
John M. Mandrola, MD
Cardiology & Electrophysiology
While the field of cardiology has been exemplary in the generation of evidence, much of what we now accept as therapeutic fashion comes with weak evidentiary support. My goal is to use historical lessons as a means to render learners less susceptible to dogma and medical reversals.
At the conclusion of the activity a participant should be able to:
- Use seminal trials to guide current critical appraisal
- Resist the urge to accept practices with weak evidentiary support
- Use critical appraisal skills to reset prior beliefs about what does and does not benefit patients
