Where is the evidence?

The internet is full of health information, and there are so many people offering treatments for stroke, that it can be hard to know what to trust. Especially when you're well and in need of help, you can be very vulnerable to misinformation. So how do you find information that's based on real evidence, and how do you know someone claiming to be a health professional is genuine?

We're going to try to find out how to find evidence-based information and how to sort the good from the bad.

Our guests for this episode are:

  • Professor Tammy Hoffmann, a clinical epidemiologist from Bond University who specialises in evidence-based practice.
  • Dan Englund, who had a stroke at 38-years-old but who has recovered enough to complete a 1000-km run.
  • Jude Czerenkowski, a social worker and national manager of Stroke Connect for the Stroke Foundation.
