The practice of evidence based medicine means integrating individual clinical expertise with the best available external clinical evidence from systematic research. From Sackett DL et al. Evidence-Based Medicine: What it is and what it isn't BMJ. 1996 Jan 13; 312 (7023):71-2.
This is a basic introduction to evidence-based practice resources including books, guides, media, tools, and tutorials. The term evidence-based practice (EBP) is also used interchangeably with evidence-based medicine (EBM), since many health professions have adopted evidence-based principles into their practice.
