"Evidence-Debased Medicine" and the Integrity of the Medical Profession
Elliott, Richard L
The Journal of clinical ethics 2011 Spring; 22(1): 71-3

Recent reports erode confidence in evidence-based medicine. Through self-regulation and a willingness to change, the medical profession can assert its status as a profession distinct from outside influence, serving one interest: the healthcare of patients and the public.
