What is Evidence Based Medicine (Practice)?
Evidence Based Medicine is "the conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of the individual patients." [Sackett DL, et al. Evidence based medicine: What it is and what it isn't. BMJ 1996; 312:71-2]
