Artificial intelligence versus clinicians: systematic review of design, reporting standards, and claims of deep learning studies

Nagendran Myura, Chen Yang, Lovejoy Christopher A, Gordon Anthony C, Komorowski Matthieu, Harvey Hugh et al. BMJ 2020; 368 :m689

 Our systematic review seeks to give a contemporary overview of the current standards of deep learning research for clinical applications. Specifically, we sought to describe the study characteristics, and evaluate the methods and quality of reporting and transparency of deep learning studies that compare diagnostic algorithm performance with human clinicians. We aim to suggest how we can move forward in a way that encourages innovation while avoiding hype, diminishing research waste, and protecting patients.

"Nagendran and colleagues find that much current hype around AI is unjustified but there is reason to believe that technology will increasingly outperform human physicians at specific tasks. If digital technologies enable the development of new forms of knowledge and expand the healing possibilities of the therapeutic encounter, then they have the potential to provide the medicine that patients expect in the 21st century. If not, we need to think more urgently about how to resist current trends towards more automation in the clinic."

NSW Clinical Guidelines: Treatment of Opioid Dependence 2018

NSW Health has developed these guidelines that seek to provide clinical guidance and policy direction for opioid treatment in NSW.

The guidelines aim to improve access to opioid treatment by:

  • Personalise patient care by introducing a system that differentiates between those who have low/moderate treatment needs and can be treated in community settings and those with complex/high treatment needs and should be referred to and treated in the specialist treatment sector
  • Support more effective coordination of care across health services.

These guidelines are intended for use in generalist health settings (for example primary care, hospital, clinic or community settings) as well as specialised drug and alcohol / opioid treatment clinics.

The Guideline can be accessed at: http://www.health.nsw.gov.au/aod/Pages/nsw-clinical-guidelines-opioid.aspx
