What is the goal of the Medicine and Health section? Specifically, does
Citizendium want to be giving information that health care providers
will use in caring for their patients? This is a good idea as in 20% of
primary care office encounters the physicians care for the patient in
spite of having unanswered questions. However...


If giving information to health care providers is a goal, there are
special issues emerging in medical publishing about how to ensure
content that is valid, quickly readable, and unbiased (mainly by
industry). I suggest that these issues should be addressed at the
beginning of Citizendium in order to avoid rewriting content later.
