Description

Clinical science is not just data, it’s persuasion. Siloed professional roles and conceptual habits that dichotomize facts from values keep us from recognizing this. Examples from bariatric surgery and attentiondeficit/ hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) research show that these habits have pernicious effects, such as stigmatization. A Pragmatist framework for clinical science denies the dichotomies and supports robust and democratic communication of and about research at all stages.

Examples from bariatric surgery and attentiondeficit/ hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) research show that these habits have pernicious effects, such as stigmatization. A Pragmatist framework for clinical science denies the dichotomies and supports robust and democratic communication of and about research at all stages.
