This article, like a few others being recommended, isn’t from a scientific journal, but instead comes from a very interesting article in the magazine The New Yorker, in which Dr Atul Gawande discusses his experiences related to overdiagnosis and over-treatment. It’s an eye opener.

Multimodal therapy. Lazarus has prepared a primer on MMT which is exceptionally interesting. It’s fairly lengthy, but for those with a clinical interest it is absorbing.
