  Title A primer on evidence-based practice for chiropractors
Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2011 Sep;41(3):78-80
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes Evidence-based practice (EBP) has existed for more than 20 years and has been adopted on a global level by representatives from virtually every health care profession, including chiropractic. EBP was conceived by a group of medical educators at McMaster’s University when they began training physicians about the importance of integrating research evidence into their clinical practices. Pertaining to chiropractic, EBP has been defined as: Actively seeking support for and improvement of chiropractic clinical practice through the integration of the best available research evidence, combined with clinical expertise and patient preferences.

EBP is taught in some form at every chiropractic educational institution in the world and many chiropractors utilise it in their practices. Nevertheless, it is misunderstood and criticized by some chiropractors and at times it is misused. The purpose of this article is therefore to briefly inform chiropractors about the steps involved in EBP, how it can be of benefit to patients as well as practitioners, and how it can be mastered by all chiropractors.
