Gene context of Evidence-Based Medicine

  • An evidence-based medicine approach to combined treatment for ADHD in children and adolescents [21].
  • Because decisions regarding therapy are so common in clinical practice, the application of number needed to treat (NNT) is one of the most important evidence-based medicine skills to be acquired [22].
  • Evidence-based medicine, whose philosophical origins extend back to mid-19th century Paris and earlier, is the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients [23].
  • OBJECTIVE: To assess the attitudes of practicing general internists toward evidence-based medicine (EBM-defined as the process of systematically finding, appraising, and using contemporaneous research findings as the basis for clinical decisions) and their perceived barriers to its use [24].
  • In this article, the use of botulinum toxin (BTX) in cervical dystonia is reviewed according to evidence-based medicine [25].
