Title Moving from anecdote to evidence
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 2006 Dec;50(4):235-237
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes Excerpt: Evidence based medicine (EBM)1 and evidence-based practice (EBP) have become the major driving force impacting clinical practice education, policy making and scientific medical research. EBM and EBP has therefore become of direct interest and relevance to the majority of health teaching and research in universities.

I have to admit that I was initially excited by the goals of EBM and EBP, which seemed to bring hope for a new level of objectivity. However, this hope was clearly a premature premature evaluation and has been upset by the preeminent professional application of evidence based practice, which breaks down to simply finding the best evidence within a paradigm, without questioning the paradigm itself. The emphasis on hard science tends to devalue multifaceted highly developed clinical expertise largely derived from experience and a detailed study and understanding of individual patients.
