Evidence Based Practice

Evidence-based medicine (EBM) or evidence based practice (EBP):

Evidence based practice relies on the premise that to make well informed decisions about practice, researchers need to access the best evidence about interventions. Evidence-based practice can be said to be an integration of the best research evidence from the literature, your own expertise and experience, and your clients' values and situation. (Sackett, 1996
