Lee, MA, MSc, FRCS University Hospitals, Coventry and Warwickshire National Health Service Trust, Walsgrave Hospital, Clifford Bridge Road, Coventry CV2 2DX, England, UK The obligation of individual doctors to keep up to date and maintain their clinical skills is clearly identified by regulatory bodies. For example, in the United Kingdom, one of the duties of a doctor laid down by the General Medical Council (GMC) is to ‘‘keep your professional knowledge and skills up to date’’ [1], and in the Canadian Medical Education Directions for Specialists model of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, being a ‘‘medical expert’’ links together other key roles of a doctor as a professional, a communicator, a scholar, a collaborator, a health advocate, and a manager [2].

At the end of this process, another subset of studies will have been excluded from the review. What is the validity of the individual study? In essence, is this a good or a bad study? Has the study been designed and conducted in such a way that bias has been reduced to the minimum? Specific biases include selection bias, performance bias, attrition bias, and detection bias. Good RCTs are designed to avoid these. Briefly, ‘‘selection bias’’ occurs if there are systematic differences between the groups within a trial that might affect the prognosis or responsiveness to treatment of the patients in one of the groups.
