In this guide you'll find tutorials and resources to help you with the process of finding the literature you need for identifying evidence to support evidence-based practice. Some resources appear in multiple places, and those resources tend to be versatile and very helpful.
Evidence-Based Medicine is the conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients. The practice of evidence based medicine means integrating individual clinical expertise with the best available external clinical evidence from systematic research . . . External clinical evidence both invalidates previously accepted diagnostic tests and treatments and replaces them with new ones that are more powerful, more accurate, more efficacious, and safer.
