Methodology: Literature search identified 190 EBHC studies and 21 of these were reviewed and categorized into the following areas: educational and patient outcomes after EBHC medical training, and educational outcomes of EBHC chiropractic training.
Results: Improved knowledge, skills, and attitudes after EBHC medical education were demonstrated in single studies and systematic reviews. Six controlled trials showed improved patient outcomes after EBHC medical education. Limited evidence from three single studies of EBHC chiropractic training indicate improved self-assessed educational outcomes.
Conclusions: EBHC developed from practical need in addressing clinical uncertainty and evolves through continuous integration of new research. Early evidence demonstrated improved educational and patient outcomes after EBHC medical education. Rigorous studies of EBHC training on patient outcomes are needed in chiropractic education.
