I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Dr. Robert Weyant, Associate Dean at University of Pittsburgh and editor of the Journal of Public Health Dentistry, and Dr. Michael Mackert, Director of the Center for Health Communication at University of Texas, Austin, for their thoughts on evidence-based practice. Evidence-based practice is the core of every clinical profession and drives effective person-centered care. This week’s episode of Anecdotal Evidence features Dr. Weyant and Dr. Mackert’s thoughts on educating a future public health workforce to utilize evidence-based approaches, reinforcing implementation science, and the necessity of replication studies. What effect has predatory journals had on the peer review process? How can we be good consumers and advocates of scientific practice?
