AoP Webinar series: Emerging issues in medicine “Can evidence-based medicine survive in a pandemic?”

The Covid-19 pandemic emerged and consumed over half a million lives within 6 months. There has been an unprecedented response from the medical research community but dissemination of data has often occurred via media announcements and pre-prints without the usual checks of the peer review process. Has this served us well under the circumstances? Or should we do things differently in future?
