with the principles discussed by me and others on this Forum.
Your comment about "clinical experience" appears to me inappropriate. There
is nothing wrong with "clinical experience"-particularly if supported by
good data collection and knowledge of relevant literature which in turn is
supported by clinical experience...
My comment was never meant to be a joke, especially not on a public forum. My message only implied that "my" lacking of clinical experience can only allow me to learn what is written on the paper.
Instead,I also learn from those discussants, particularly outside the USA,who may not have read the paper but share their clinical experience that was fitting with their background training, their knowledge, their facility, and their patients. I always believe that practicing good medicine may require more than just knowledge but also a common sense. Things that I learn now in America may not be applicable in Thailand, Pakinstan, or somewhere else.
