Evidence-Based Medicine

Evidence-based medicine is the integration of clinical expertise, patient preferences and the best evidence from clinically-relevant research into the decision-making process for patient care. It requires skills such as efficient literature searching and the application of formal rules of evidence in evaluating the clinical literature.
