Slide notes:10 The next lecture in this unit begins with definitions and applications of EBM. We then look at the major questions that EBM tries to answer: clinical questions about intervention, diagnosis, harm, and prognosis. We look at techniques for summarizing evidence, such as systematic reviews and medical analyses that bring multiple studies together to give us a comprehensive picture of the research topic. We then look at some approaches to putting evidence into practice, including clinical guidelines and decision analysis.
