In 1965, Sir Austin Bradford Hill proposed guidelines for assessing causality. His intention was not for these to be used in a rigid manner but rather to be used as a guide.
Review resources on Hill's guidelines for causality. Then find a review journal article dealing with an association where causality is hypothesized based on an assessment of the body of literature on a topic. Analyze this article using Hill's guidelines. Then respond to the following questions:
Does the article use Hill's guidelines to determine causality?
If so, are they each addressed thoroughly?
If not, describe the alternative means used for assessing causality.
How well do you believe Hill's guidelines work as a tool for determining causality for the association your review article addresses?
