Medical education needs recognition and strengthening through research
Modern medical practice relies heavily on research evidence to guide us towards predictable, safe outcomes of investigations and procedures that aim to improve the quantity and quality of life. As there are still substantial gaps in knowledge, researchers are supported to add to the evidence base. New technologies are proven to be (or not to be) safer or more effective. This continual reflection on practice and drive to expand options and reduce error margins is lauded as scientific progress.
