Thank you to everyone who voted in this week’s poll. Following the inaugral session last week I’m pleased to announce the paper which we will be critically appraising on 28th August will be:
Prostate specific antigen concentration at age 60 and death or metastasis from prostate cancer: case-control study (2011) published in the British Medical Journal and accessible here.
Authors: Andrew J Vickers, Angel M Cronin, Thomas Björk, Jonas Manjer, Peter M Nilsson, Anders Dahlin, Anders Bjartell, Peter T Scardino, David Ulmert and Hans Lilja
We will post a summary of the paper and points for discussion shortly on the website prior to the PHTwitJC session due to take place on Sunday 28th August @ 8pm (GMT+1)
As always, PHTwitJC depends upon your input! So thank you for taking part in the poll. Forthcoming sessions include appraising a randomised-control trial (week 3 – 4th Sept) and a cohort design (week 4 – 18th Sept) so please submit any papers you would like to be considered by replying to this post or tweeting to @PHTwitJC
