PainSci commentary on Isaacs 2001: ?This page is one of thousands in the PainScience.com bibliography. It is not a general article: it is focused on a single scientific paper, and it may provide only just enough context for the summary to make sense. Links to other papers and more general information are provided wherever possible.
Basing medicine on careful observation and independently verifiable facts was a great idea when it started with Vesalius in the 1600s, and it’s been delivering the goods so well ever since that many doctors have been a bit puzzled by the modern EBM movement: what else would you base medicine on? Faith? Wit? Vehemence? In this paper, the British Medical Journal suggests seven amusing possibilities, and it’s easy to imagine more.
