Evidence-Based Medicine : An Overview

Kamlesh Bhargava, Roman Jaeschke

Abstract


Evidence-based Medicine (EBM) has been proposed as the most significant intellectual advance in the process of clinical decision-making in the past decade. With more than 25,000 medical journals publishing 4 million articles a year, doctors are unable to cope with the information overload. The principles and practice of EBM show the way to bridge the gap between research and practice. Reactions evoked in the medical profession towards this new discipline have been in extremes, from outright rejection to enthusiastic acceptance. The goal of this paper is to familiarise the readers with the ideas and concepts associated with the phrase Evidence-based Medicine.
