Journal Club 1: Effect of exercise training for five years on all cause mortality in older adults—the Generation 100 study: randomised controlled trial

June 12 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Broken Science Journal Club, a new initiative that draws inspiration from a venerable tradition in medical education and critical discourse. Following in the footsteps of Sir William Osler, who founded the first known medical journal club at McGill University in 1875, our Journal Club seeks to revitalize the spirit of meticulous scrutiny and collaborative learning in the face of modern medical challenges where research can often be perplexing and misleading.

At The Broken Science Journal Club, we aim to equip medical professionals and researchers with the skills necessary to dissect and interpret complex medical literature. Our meetings will provide a structured environment where the latest studies are not only reviewed but critically analyzed for methodological soundness and relevance to clinical practice. This critical appraisal is essential in today’s landscape, where the rush to publish can sometimes prioritize novelty over robustness, leading to confusion and misinformation.

Our Journal Club is not just a nod to historical academic rigor but a necessary fixture in the modern medical community. It is a place where consensus is challenged, and data-driven decision-making is paramount. Each session is an opportunity to engage with peers, challenge prevailing narratives, and foster a deeper understanding of the intricate tapestry of contemporary medical research.

Join us at the Broken Science Journal Club, where tradition meets critical inquiry, fostering a future where medical practice and research are guided by clarity and evidence, not just convention and expedience. Together, we can navigate the complexities of medical literature and advocate for research that truly serves the needs of patients and practitioners alike.

In this journal club, Bob Kaplan will be going over the paper “Effect of exercise training for five years on all cause mortality in older adults—the Generation 100 study: randomised controlled trial” published 4 years ago in the BMJ. Those with tickets should will later receive an email with a link to the online session with Bob.
