Abstract The author discusses the logic of science and its relation to clinical research. She states that scientists used induction to prove their theories by repeating experiments to get similar results. She explains that a drug can be considered effective if it has been the subject of successful repeated clinical trials. She relates her experience in finding a solution to treating pressure areas as an example of how wrong something can be if it is not based on the logic of science. [Summary from Ebsco]
