Professor Paul Glasziou still remembers the event in the late 1980s that set him on his future career. 

It was when Professor David Sackett — the pioneer of evidence-based medicine, famed for the quote that half of what you learn in medical school is dead wrong — visited the University of Sydney.

“At that point, the term ‘evidence-based medicine’ hadn’t even been coined, but that was the work he was doing,” says Professor Glasziou.
