The Net Treatment Benefit for the Patient

The statistic the patient needs the most is the "net treatment benefit." Yet, the "net treatment benefit for the patient" is not a statistic seen in medical studies.

The patient not only needs to know the "net treatment benefit," they need to know the ABSOLUTE net treatment benefit. The word "absolute" can be important, because patients are often given the relative benefit instead of the absolute benefit. The relative benefit can look fantastic while the absolute benefit can be near zero.

The more you learn, the better off you are when it comes to your health.
