An outstanding, genre-defining work, this book will be read by students, educators, policymakers, scientists, scholars, medical skeptics, and health-care pundits alike. -- John Henning Schumann, MD, host of Public Radio Tulsa's Medical Matters An important book that frames medical reversal in a compelling way. Readers will be drawn to this clearly written account. -- David S. Jones, MD, Harvard University, author of Broken Hearts: The Tangled History of Cardiac Care
Vinayak K. Prasad, MD, MPH, is a practicing hematologist-oncologist and internal medicine physician at the National Cancer Institute. Adam S. Cifu, MD, is a professor of medicine at the University of Chicago. He is a practicing general internist, medical educator, and the coauthor of Symptom to Diagnosis: An Evidence-Based Guide.
Every doctor should read this book. * JAMA Internal Medicine * Dr. Prasad and Dr. Cifu offer a five-step plan, including pointers for determining if a given treatment is really able to do what you want it to do, and advice on finding a like-minded doctor who won't object to a certain amount of back-seat driving. Of course, there are no guarantees that their tips will endure forever, but they probably have a longer shelf life than most medical advice. * New York Times * When I describe Ending Medical Reversal as revolutionary, I don't use the term lightly. Go out and read it-right now. * Common Sense Family Dr. * ... Should be considered for undergraduate reading lists. Keep a copy in the pharmacy or your briefcase as a great icebreaker or discussion point with other local healthcare professionals. * The Pharmaceutical Journal * [A]n excellent and realistic discussion of some of the horror stories that occur in medical practice....The examples are quite interesting and certainly educational for all readers. Highly recommended. * Choice * Ending Medical Reversal goes far in teaching medical students and practicing physicians alike how to learn on our own. * The Lancet * This has to be on the reading list for medical and nursing students. * Nursing Times * Ending Medical Reversal: Improving Outcomes, Saving Lives presents persuasive evidence that many current standard-of-care treatments are probably ineffective or harmful, thoroughly explains how such treatments came to be accepted, and proposes a number of ways to address the general problem (only some of which involve avaricious companies and mercenary physicians) and minimize its impact on a specific patient. * Journal of Clinical Research Best Practices *
