My latest HND piece starts the year off with some suggestions. These are:

2.   Apply rigorous tort reform to medical malpractice

3.   Temper medicine's current obsession with blood numbers

5.   Reform the medical education cartel

6.   Bring real editorial boards back to scientific journals

7.   Promote a healthy skepticism within the general public
