Slide content:Overview of the Application of EBM Steps include Phrasing a clinical question that is pertinent and answerable Identifying evidence to address the question Critically appraising the evidence to determine whether it applies to the patient 13
Slide notes:13 How is evidence-based medicine applied? The steps are listed on this slide. The first step is phrasing a clinical question that is pertinent and answerable. The second step is identifying the evidence to address the question. The third step is critically appraising the evidence to determine if it applies to the patient. We spend less time discussing critical appraisal, although well go into more detail about it when we talk about interventions; however, all of the references listed earlier on slide 4 describe the process of critically appraising the evidence.
