Is the Evidence that Informs Your Practice 'Dirty'?

Healthcare professions pride themselves on the use of an evidence-based framework to inform their practice. Decisions are grounded in evidence that has been obtained through rigorous research and vetted by means of a robust process of peer review and editorial scrutiny before it is disseminated for use. But what would you do if some of the evidence that informs your practice is, in fact, 'dirty'? That is, the research data, whilst entirely valid, was obtained by completely unethical means? In this episode, I’m going to explore this question in depth and investigate how one set of datum from a series of shocking WWII Nazi human experiments snuck its way back into the contemporary research literature and, in fact, informs some of our current clinical practices.
