Best Science Medicine Podcast - BS without the BS

A Science and Medicine podcast
Good podcast? Give it some love!
The Best Science (BS) Medicine Podcast is a weekly presentation where practitioners can get evidence-based drug therapy content that is practical, entertaining and promotes healthy scepticism. In essence, we are the Medication Mythbusters. We present information that is useful and relevant to physicians, pharmacists, nurses, physician assistants and other health professionals, and that can easily be incorporated into day-to-day practice. The podcast is presented by Dr. James McCormack, Professor in the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of British Columbia and Dr Michael Allan, Associate Professor in the Department of Family Practice at the University of Alberta.

Recent Episodes

In episode 408, Mike and James talk about a couple of recent survey publications. One, which examined patient satisfaction around patient requests and denials of those requests. The other examined how often and why patients are not always honest about disclosing medically relevant information. At the end we decide there is a little liar in all of us and we just need to accept it.
In episode 406, Mike, James, and Tina go over the evidence for treating opioid use disorder in primary care and the evidence is clear that it can be done in primary care but specialized opioid treatment programs are also obviously needed. Show notes 1) Tools for Practice
In episode 405, Mike and James, with yet again the very smart and helpful Tina Korownyk, go over the evidence for buprenorphine-naloxone for pharmaceutical opioid use disorder. While the evidence is at moderate to high risk of bias the results are fairly impressive with NNTs of 3-5. Show notes Tools for Practice
