Welcome to another episode of The Words Matter Podcast.
So we continue our exploration of the CauseHealth book (download for FREE here), via this CauseHealth Series, and we have reached the midway point. In this episode I’m speaking with Matthew Low about his Chapter 8 titled Above and Beyond Statistical Evidence. Why Stories Matter for Clinical Decisions and Shared Decision Making (read Chapter 8 here).
Matthew is a Consultant Physiotherapist in the south of England, and is a Visiting Associate at the Orthopaedic Research Institute at Bournemouth University. Many of you will be aware of Matt’s excellent writing and thinking (see here, here and here), and he’s been on this podcast twice previously in episodes 7 (here) and 10 (here) about evidence, practice and knowledge.
In this episode we talk about;
As expected, this was another hugely satisfying and insightful conversation with Matt, he has so much to offer on causality, evidence and person-centred care. His vast clinical experience, means that his perspective is very much ‘from the trenches’, making the theory all the more accessible and usable for clinicians. So please enjoy, and Matt will definitely be back in a Words Matter Quadrilogy later this year, so stand by.
