JAMA Internal Medicine's Rita Redberg on The Recommended Dose

This week influential Editor-in-Chief of JAMA Internal Medicine Dr Rita Redberg joins host Ray Moynihan on Cochrane Australia's podcast The Recommended Dose to share a wide ranging conversation on all things health. A Professor at the University of California San Francisco and high profile contributor to The Washington Post and New York Times, Rita is also a practising cardiologist who loves to see patients. She says that ‘being a doctor is really a privilege’.

Together, Ray and Rita canvas many topics including shared decision making between doctors and patients, the tricky territory of medical device approvals, the controversy surrounding both statins and CT scans, and the implications of not including enough women in clinical trials.
