Summary
Medical reversal happens when doctors start using a medication, procedure, or diagnostic tool without a robust evidence base - and then stop using it when it is found not to help, or even to harm, patients. The authors narrate stories from every corner of medicine to explore why medical reversals occur, how they are harmful, and what can be done to avoid them. They explore the difference between medical innovations that improve care and those that only appear to be promising. They also outline a comprehensive plan to reform medical education, research funding and protocols, and the process for approving new drugs that will ensure that more of what gets done in doctors&#x; offices and hospitals is truly effective
