Evidence Based Practice

Intro to Evidence Based Practice

"Evidence-based medicine (EBM) requires the integration of the best research evidence with our clinical expertise and our patient's unique values and circumstances."

-- David Sackett, 1996





















Note that this approach gives equal emphasis  to:  the unique factors regarding a particular patient or population the wishes and values of the patient the best evidence available from the research, and the clinical expertise of the practitioner
