Extract

Review articles published in JAMA summarize various aspects of medical practice and are written by known authorities. An expert’s opinion about a topic has value, but often more can be learned by that expert’s assessment of all the pertinent literature. When reading individual research articles, readers could miss subtle features of the studies that are more apparent to an expert clinician-researcher. Readers benefit from the expert’s explanation of the validity and applicability of individual studies.
