CTS Seminar on Friday, September 19

For this week's seminar, we will do a journal club on this recent article:
Gagne JJ, Choudhry NK, Kesselheim AS, Polinski JM, Hutchins D, Matlin OS, et al. Comparative Effectiveness of Generic and Brand-Name Statins on Patient Outcomes: A Cohort Study. Ann Intern Med. 2014;161:400-407. doi:10.7326/M13-2942

Please read the article carefully and be prepared to say something about it in each of these areas:
What was it trying to do?
What were the methods?
What were the conclusions?
To whom do they apply?
What were its strengths?
What were its weaknesses?
Should it influence health care or policy?

Fun times for all!
