To The Editor: Bellomo quite rightly points out that medicine is now in an era when it is recognised that the amount of evidence being generated far surpasses most individual doctors’ ability to adequately deal with it.1 He suggests that “knowledge management may now be one of the major challenges of modern medicine”. However, is this a problem only needing to be confronted by those in medicine?
