  What is Evidence-based Practice?

"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 evidence from systematic research."

Quotation from:  Sackett, David L. et al. "Evidence Based Medicine: What it is and What it isn't."  BMJ  1996, 312: 71-72.
