“We are turning the evidence pyramid on its head. We think the single subject trial should be at the top of that pyramid.”
Dawn Lemanne, the founder of Oregon Integrative Oncology, is a pioneering clinician who brings powerful tools of patient involvement and self-assessment to evaluating treatment options. A widely respected researcher, she also organizes the Independent Metabolic Research Group (iMeRG) based in Southern Oregon, a group of over 40 licensed healthcare professionals who meet regularly to discuss their individual single-subject research studies. Here, Dawn describes some of the research her group is conducting, reflecting on what our future concepts of evidence may be when single subject research becomes more commonplace.
