Renal patient records

A feature this week asks "Should patients be able to control their own records?". The website renalpatientview.org allows patients to do exactly that. Neil Turner, a professor of nephrology at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, explains how he and colleagues developed the resource.

Also Steven Woloshin and Lisa Schwartz, authors of the "Not So Stories" column have turned their statistical scrutiny onto a recent advert by Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, the breast cancer charity. They explain how the case for mammography has been massively oversold.
