Quackery has been steadily infiltrating academic medicine for at least two decades now in the form of what was once called “complementary and alternative medicine” but is now more commonly referred to as “integrative medicine.” Of course, as I’ve written many times before, what “integrative medicine” really means is the “integration” of quackery with science- and evidence-based medicine, to the detriment of SBM. As my good bud Mark Crislip once put it, “integrating” cow pie with apple pie does not improve the apple pie. Yet that is what’s going on in medical academia these days—with a vengeance. It’s a phenomenon that I like to call quackademic medicine, something that’s fast turning medical academia into medical quackademia. It is not, as its proponents claim, the “best of both worlds.” In fact, it was my two recent publications bemoaning the infiltration of quackademic medicine into … [Read more...] about Quackademic medicine marches on: George Washington University and the University of Toronto

Scarborough Hospital will face “challenges” to maintain a 24-hour surgical rota in the coming months, the health trust says. Two surgeons will be leaving the hospital in the “near future” and there will be “challenges” to maintain a 24-hour surgical rota on the Yorkshire Coast.The rota provides around-the-clock cover in case a patient at the hospital requires immediate general surgery. A healthcare worker in the area, who asked to remain anonymous, claims: “This has massive implications for the local population. “They could find themselves without a surgeon within 45 miles of Scarborough, able to operate in an emergency. “This could lead to deaths. If we don’t have surgeons then we stand to lose accident and emergency, and many operations currently done at Scarborough.”The York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, which runs the hospitals in Scarborough, Bridlington and York, is working to maintain the availability of … [Read more...] about Is 24-hour surgery to end in Scarborough?
