Brazil’s doctors turn on to evidence-based medicine

TWENTY thousand Brazilian doctors, approximately 10% of the country’s total, regularly watch a primetime television show dedicated to promoting the practice of evidence-based medicine. The Brazilian Cochrane Centre and the Sao Paolo Medical Association created the programme, Medicina Baseada em Evidencias, three years ago. It regularly attracts an audience of some two million, to watch the presenter, a doctor trained in evidence-based medicine, interview experts on medical topics. The show’s message is spreading beyond Brazil’s borders, via satellite to viewers in Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay.
