Insightful, supportive coaching to help you meet your speaking goals

Hello, Doctor!

The media may approach you for an interview on a medical study.

Here is a question to ask yourself as you prepare to communicate information about the study:

Can I put the study findings into context?

Then ask yourself:

  • If the findings are preliminary, how will I make that clear?

  • If the findings differ from previous studies, how will I indicate that and explain why? How does the weight of this study compare to the others?

  • To whom do the findings apply?

  • Will I explain how risks and benefits of an intervention compare to other factors, such as lifestyle/behavior and genetics?

  • Will I distinguish population-wide risk vs. individual risk? Will I call out absolute risk vs. relative risk?

In the next post in this series, I’ll go over some general guidelines for addressing peer review. Stay tuned!
