Evidence Based Medicine

Evidence based medicine works to integrate and synthesize the latest research (evidence) with clinical experience and patient values to aid in clinical decision making.  Evidence based medicine relies on critical analysis, scholarly literature as well as clinical practice to inform practitioners to make the best clinical decisions.

The following resources offer synthesized and evaluated evidence about healthcare topics, frequently referred to as secondary literature.  They are designed to assist the physician when making point-of-care decisions.

More information about Evidence based medicine can be found in UIC Library of the Health Sciences Guide to Evidence Based Medicine
