If you are going to comment on research studies in social media…

…please read and understand the study first. Don’t embarrass yourself by just commentting based on the what you think the title of the study means.

For example, this recent study was published. The study investigated outcomes of clubfoot treatment to see if immediate or delayed treatment affected outcomes. Of the 176 cases they reviewed, the age at presentation did not affect the outcome (except for the issue of cast slippage).

I shared this study on my social media platforms and so did many others. It was surprising the number of comments in response that the treatment for clubfoot must begin as soon as possible, which is not what the study showed. I can only assume that the commenters are responding to the title of the study and not actually bothering to read it, let alone understand it. Fail.
