Why is health information so conflicting? Is there a place where health information is reliable? What should I consider when encountering something that seems magical? How is the health system affected by these issues?
These questions guide this Evidence-Based Health course.

2) individual practitioner’s clinical expertise, and
3) patients’ preference.
