  Title Evidence-based medicine: Best practices and practice guidelines [editorial]
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 2007 Nov;30(9):615-616
Peer Review No
Publication Type Editorial
Abstract/Notes Excerpt: Any thoughtful physician would want to provide the best services for his or her patients, and as far as we know, this has been a precept that has been accepted since the beginning of recorded history as it relates to the practice of healing. This position is one of simple ethical behavior and is part of any vow taken by doctors who practice in one of the branches of medicine. This ethic is characterized by the old and often repeated principle “primum non nocere,” which, interpreted means “first do no harm.”

Although that precept is the foundation for ethical practice, it only speaks to what a physician should not do, and we all know that is not sufficient guidance for a strong patient-based practice. In addition to causing no harm, one who heals must be expected to provide a service that will bring a restoration of optimal health or the maintenance of optimal health, and those are terms which are subject to interpretation.
