Slide notes:Evidence-based practice provides clinicians with a methodology they can use to make sound decisions about patient care. The most recent manuals for applying EBM are a handbook and reference authored by Guyatt et al. EBM combines clinician skills, which are a combination of training and experience; patient values, which are the concerns and expectations of the patient; and evidence from research, which involves clinically relevant studies that are conducted using sound methodology; into a model methodology of practice that aims to allow superior care to be delivered. 4
