She doesn’t post often, but I really enjoy Hilda Bastian’s blog Statistically Funny. Her motto is “Commenting on the science of unbiased health research with cartoons” and she does it well, with both humor and education.
I’ve had the article Does it Work? marked as one I wanted to comment on for months now. Because the “Does it work?” question is one that I get asked all the time as a CBE and doula. And while it is tempting to give a simple yes or no, the truth isn’t anywhere near that easy to answer. Maybe Leonard (the patient in the cartoon) wishes it were, but it’s important to be carefully thinking through the subtleties. Hilda’s article is chock full of links and they’re very helpful and educational. If you don’t follow her blog, you can find her on Twitter @Hildabast as well.
