Politics of Evaluating the Evidence and How to Read an Article – Ep. 19
In this episode, we strategically unpack the significance of research and how to read an article. Keeping up to date with research and best practices took on a new precedence as virtual learning re-positioned itself against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic! We welcome researching clinical endodontists, Dr. Anita Aminoshariae, past member of the ADA Council on Scientific Affairs, and Dr. Rob Roda, associate editor for the JOE, to the podcast as they share insights from their unique perspectives. Ever wonder how to properly assess research articles, how to interpret the value of a publication’s impact factor, or what questions to ask to identify where the gap in research exists? Our discussion touches on various techniques to extract the pertinent information from an article for quick and thorough analysis, and how to evaluate research methods and study designs. Our guests decipher when a clinician should implement research into their daily practice with the goal of patient-centered outcomes at the core.
