DCNS honours Dr. Samuel Wiebe with inaugural lectureship

Distinguished Professor Dr. Gordon Guyatt presented the inaugural Dr. Samuel Wiebe Lectureship at the Clara Christie Theatre January 22. 

Dr. Guyatt, a professor in the departments of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics at McMaster University, had a packed auditorium for his lecture “Evidence Based Medicine IS Personalized Medicine”.

Dr. Guyatt introduced the term “evidence based medicine” (EBM) in an editorial in 1991, and since then has been a leading advocate of evidence-based approaches to clinical decision-making. His over 1,000 publications in peer review journals have been cited over 80,000 times. Recognition for his work includes, in 2012, his becoming an Officer of the Order of Canada and in 2013 the Canadian Institute of Health Research Researcher of the Year.
