This week: Oregon Medicaid Expansion and a systematic review of anti-influenza medications.
Janice and Amol want you to:
1. Understand the effect of health care coverage expansion on health care utilization.
2. Understand the utility of randomized control trials in the formulation of causal inferences.
3. Recognize that anti-influenza antiviral medications appear to cause only a minor reduction in the duration of symptoms
4. Understand how access to clinical study reports might enhance transparency in clinical trials and improve health policy decisions
