Detailed, evidence-based help for common painful problems

AllTrials.net 

 •  • by Paul Ingraham
Weekly nuggets of pain science news and insight, usually 100-300 words, with the occasional longer post. The blog is the “director’s commentary” on the core content of PainScience.com: a library of major articles and books about common painful problems and popular treatments. See the blog archives or updates for the whole site.

AllTrials.net is trying make sure ALL research results are reported—not just results that make drugs look good. I’ve signed the AllTrials.net petition & donated. Here’s my petition statement:

As a health writer earnestly trying to respect the evidence, I have been amazed and dismayed for years by all the fixable glitches in the pursuit of knowledge — such as the file-drawer effect. I am thrilled by the prospect that even one of these problems might be solved by smart collective action. Go AllTrials, go!

P.S. Dr. Ben Goldacre’s TED talk about AllTrials.net is really fascinating/chilling.
