Why a Doctor Would Be Relieved When a New Study Fails To Reduce Deaths

The title of this piece seems a little harsh, but Dalrymple makes it clear that he does want better treatments to be found, as shown here:

Of course I want death rates to be lowered, but I was at the same time rather relieved by the results. I don’t really want a world in which all our actions are predetermined by written protocol, and in which we are obliged to act like bureaucrats without ever exercising our individual judgment.

Anyway, read the whole piece and judge for yourself.
