Evidence Based Medicine

\r\n Evidence-Based Medicine:

\r\n Evidence-based medicine (EBM) is the conscientious, explicit, judicious and reasonable use of modern, best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients. EBM integrates clinical experience and patient values with the best available research information. It is a movement which aims to increase the use of high -quality clinical research in clinical decision making. EBM requires new skills of the clinician, including efficient literature-searching, and the application of formal rules of evidence in evaluating the clinical literature. The practice of evidence-based medicine is a process of lifelong, self-directed, problem-based learning in which caring for one’s own patients creates the need for clinically important information about diagnosis, prognosis, therapy, and other clinical and health care issues.

\r\n

\r\n The EBM-oriented clinicians of tomorrow have three tasks:

\r\n •             To use evidence summaries in clinical practice

\r\n •             To help develop and update selected systematic reviews or evidence-based guidelines in their area of expertise

\r\n •             To enroll patients in studies of treatment, diagnosis, and prognosis on which medical practice is based.
