    Does "never be performed" mean "never be carried out in clinical practice"?

    Context:

    Context:

    It is unlikely that practitioners and policy makers will be informed with definitive data from RCTs in the near future. As indicated by Zurawska et al,5 a RCT evaluating screening will probably never be performed. Thus, communications to practitioners and policy makers about today's best practices need to emphasize the importance and yet remaining uncertainties associated with this decision-making process. The economic analysis of Zurawska et al provides helpful information addressing one of these uncertainties. Their work contributes to available information supporting as a standard of care routine HBV screening of patients with DLBCL who are to receive R-CHOP and provision of prophylactic therapy to those with a positive test.

    Profession matters.

    Some members here have medical background and thus may have a ready hand to point out the right direction.

    You may want to read 5jj"s answer again. The profession has little to do with how the language is used here.
