Study: Many physicians misled by cancer statistics
from American Medical News
Most doctors are confused about which statistics provide reliable evidence that cancer screening tests work, says an Annals of Internal Medicine study. In a survey of 412 primary care physicians, physicians were three times more likely to recommend a screening test supported by five-year survival statistics, even though statistics are an unreliable measure of whether screening benefits patients.
