Confused about Number Needed to Treat?

All you just need is NNT http://www.thennt.com  - the blog that puts "evidence based medicine under the microscope".

With a clear explanation of what Number Needed to Treat actually means (it's a "a measurement of the impact of a medicine or therapy by estimating the number of patients that need to be treated in order to have an impact on one person" BTW), and regular updates of evidence on different therapeutic interventions, NNT is a great site to help you get to grips with this calculation.
