Item Type:Book Section
Additional Information:Co-authored with two General Practitioners, this article contributes to the notion of evidence-based learning that is based in rigorous co-inquiry and practice. It gained favourable peer review in the British Medical Journal, but publication was prevented because the authors declined on principle to halve the word-length, arguing for the necessity of explaining methodology and maintaining a multi-voiced approach. It is concerned with the medical challenge of reducing coronary heart disease in young Asian men, and shows how a group of medical and health care professionals who already operated reflexively could subject their assumptions about interventions to further, disciplined scrutiny. The group shifted their emphasis from better information giving to engaging patients and colleagues as co-researchers with a focus on lifestyle. Learning from this project is having some influence on PCG/PCT decision making. Weil wrote 66%.
