Bridging the Gap Between
Evidence and Practice
Medicine: Mind the Gap is a lecture series that explores issues at the intersection
of research, evidence, and clinical practice—areas in which conventional wisdom
may be contradicted by recent evidence. From the role of advocacy organizations
in medical research and policy, to off-label drug use, to the effectiveness of continuing
medical education, the seminar series will aim to engage the National Institutes of Health community in thought-provoking
discussions to challenge what we think we know and to think critically about our
role in today’s research environment.
