The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly Of Medical Studies: A Skeptical Journal Club

A session at Skeptical Thinking at Balticon 49

Friday 22nd May, 2015

4:00pm to 4:50pm (EST)

One of the most important aspects of being a healthy skeptic is knowing that just because a scientific study was done on a topic does not mean that the study was done well, or that the conclusion the authors reached was supported by what they actually did. But when someone states that a particular study has major flaws or was well-done, what precisely does that mean? Join us as we analyze two different journal articles in detail, focusing on the good, the bad, and the ugly of how studies are done and interpreted.
