Friday Foolery #15: The Man who pioneered the RCT

29 01 2010

This BMJ video certainly belongs on a blog like this, focussing on EBM. This video shows “John Crofton who pioneered the randomised controlled trial in a 1948 BMJ paper which looked at the antibiotic streptomycin to treat TB. Now in his 90s, Dr Crofton talks to Colin Blakemore about the importance of randomisation and blinding, and how it has helped to make medicine more evidence based.”

First seen on the Clinical Cases and Images: CasesBlog of Ves Dimov.
