A procedural close trumps involvment. Since a gadget cannot be deleted through MfD, it is pointless to keep it open. -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 17:03, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

Edokter, please point to policy that supports such an argument. Also, a gadget most assuredly can be deleted through MfD, and I may remind you that Wikipedia is not a WP:Bureaucracy — and this is policy. Carl Fredrik 💌 📧 17:06, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

Continuing MEDRS revisions[edit]

Excerpted from the Project Medicine page under Comments: CF: I'm still feeling reluctant about HTA as the highest level of evidence in the draft chart for guidelines under WP:MEDORG. The HTA article is about "technologies" specifically, such as telemedicine within MAST. A position statement based on systematic reviews as Level I for evidence-based medicine would likely be the highest standard for a clinical practice guideline which would be adopted and held unchanged for 5 years internationally if sufficiently strong. As for the other charts and text you have drafted, what tasks remain needing collaboration and what is the process for implementing the consolidated changes for MEDRS? Thanks for the excellent drafting to date. The charts are effective. --Zefr (talk) 15:30, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Zefr — HTAs refer to "technology" in the very broadest sense - calling pharmacological agents technology. If you look at the WHOs definition: [4], they go even further, to include any intervention (page 11):

A health technology is “any intervention that may be used to promote health, to prevent, diagnose or treat disease or for rehabilitation or long-term care”

That means that this report on food in obesity qualifies as an HTA [5]. Basically HTAs are what practice guidelines are based upon — sans the politics, in essence: very high quality reviews. Maybe we should get some more input on this from other users, but I think they should be there. I don't think they should be on the study image, because they aren't always entirely apolitical. Carl Fredrik 💌 📧 16:42, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
The WHO document is a good rigorous definition, but the term is both more complicated with underlying definitions and is not lay-user friendly (not one that I as a health scientist would use or previously knew). I agree input from other editors on the best possible term will help. Would be helpful if your discussion could be refreshed. --Zefr (talk) 16:56, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
I will continue with the draft, and once I feel good enough about it I'll post again. It might be good to have a couple of references for this information to avoid confusion. Carl Fredrik 💌 📧 17:25, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
Will do some looking for useful references later today-tomorrow. --Zefr (talk) 17:38, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Hey CFCF, it's my perennial invitation for collaborating on an anatomical article, if you have time. I'm about to start working on the high profile article Human body and have been thinking about touching up Hypoglossal nerve... although I'd love to collaborate on anything if you have time!

Thank you, I'm very well. I will have time next week, and I'd love to take a look. I really do want to get the entire Cranial nerves set to a high standard, but I'll take a look at both of those.

Human body[edit]

Hi, we haven't met before, and I'm sorry to introduce myself in the situation we're now in with the human body article. Tom (LT) asked me to lend a hand, given that the article needed work, and I gave it my best shot. I think I understood from one of your edit comments that you intend to evaluate everything I did, and to restore some/most of it when you see why it's a major improvement, but that you feel the need to revert all of it for now until you get some time to look? If that's the case, ok, do that; if you feel you can put back most of it, then ping me and I'll come along to help again. If not, I guess I'm off. Chiswick Chap (talk) 19:30, 5 September 2016 (UTC)

Note about insurance company evaluations[edit]

responding to this;; insurance company evaluations can be useful on altmed articles as they are sometimes one of the only independent bodies to actually put time into evaluating and something something sensible about the evidence, or lack therof, for these things. So, so useful to support content like: "As of (date) there was no good evidence that X is safe or effective for Y." Jytdog (talk) 09:01, 14 October 2016 (UTC)
