How can GPs tackle the ‘crowdfunder’ quandary?


I think the article conflates two issues: "Is crowdfunding medical treatment a good thing?" and "Is choosing unevidenced treatment of over evidence-based treatment (in life threatening medical conditions) a good thing?" Personally I don't think that crowdfunding treatment per se is bad, just that it is often used for unwise treatments!
