Investigating fatigue of less than 6 months' duration. Guidelines for family physicians. (2/6496)OBJECTIVE: To develop an evidence-based systematic approach to assessment of adult patients who present to family physicians complaining of fatigue of less than 6 months' duration. The guidelines present investigative options, making explicit what should be considered in all cases and what should be considered only in specific situations. They aim to provide physicians with an approach that, to the extent possible, is based on evidence so that time and cost are minimized and detection and management of the cause of the fatigue are optimized. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: MEDLINE was searched from 1966 to 1997 using the key words "family practice" and "fatigue." Articles about chronic fatigue syndrome were excluded. Articles with level 3 evidence were found, but no randomized trials, cohort studies, or case-control studies were found. Articles looking specifically at the epidemiology, demographics, investigations, and diagnoses of patients with fatigue were chosen. Articles based on studies at referral and specialty centres were given less weight than those based on studies in family physicians' offices. MAIN MESSAGE: Adherence to these guidelines will decrease the cost of investigating the symptom of fatigue and optimize diagnosis and management. This needs to be proved in practice, however, and with research that produces level 1 and 2 evidence. CONCLUSIONS: Adults presenting with fatigue of less than 6 months' duration should be assessed for psychosocial causes and should have a focused history and physical examination to determine whether further investigations should be done. The guidelines outline investigations to be considered. The elderly require special consideration. These guidelines have group validation, but they need to be tested by more physicians in various locations and types of practices. (+info)

A design model for computer-based guideline implementation based on information management services. (4/6496)Clinical practice guidelines must be implemented effectively if they are to influence the behavior of clinicians. The authors describe a model for computer-based guideline implementation that identifies eight information management services needed to integrate guideline-based decision support with clinical workflow. Recommendation services determine appropriate activities in specific clinical circumstances. Documentation services involve data capture. Registration services integrate demographic and administrative data. Explanation services enhance the credibility of automated recommendations by providing supportive evidence and rating the quality of evidence. Calculation services measure time intervals, suggest medication dosages, and perform other computational tasks. Communication services employ standards for information transfer and provide data security. Effective presentation services facilitate understanding of complex data, clarify trends, and format written materials (including prescriptions) for patients. Aggregation services associate outcomes with specific guideline interventions. The authors provide examples of the eight services that make up the model from five evidence-based practice parameters developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics. (+info)
Maternity Care Guidelines checklist. To assist physicians in implementing CPGs. (5/6496)PROBLEM BEING ADDRESSED: Implementing the recommended clinical practice guidelines for prenatal care can be difficult for busy practitioners because the guidelines are numerous and continually being revised.

Interventions graded C by either task force or recommended by organizations not necessarily using the same rigorous criteria are listed in plain type. Recommended interventions are displayed along a time line under three headings: clinical maneuvers, investigations, and issues for discussion. Pilot testing by 12 practising physicians and 12 family practice residents showed that most respondents thought the checklist very useful. CONCLUSIONS: Providing a one-page checklist summarizing recommended clinical maneuvers, investigations, and topics for discussion should help physicians with implementing the many clinical practice guidelines for prenatal care.

Achieving 'best practice' in health promotion: improving the fit between research and practice. (6/6496)This paper is based on the proposition that transfer of knowledge between researchers and practitioners concerning effective health promotion interventions is less than optimal. It considers how evidence concerning effectiveness in health promotion is established through research, and how such evidence is applied by practitioners and policy makers in deciding what to do and what to fund when addressing public health problems. From this examination it is concluded that there are too few rewards for researchers which encourage research with potential for widespread application and systematic development of promising interventions to a stage of field dissemination. Alternatively, practitioners often find themselves in the position of tackling a public health problem where evidence of efficacy is either lacking, or has to be considered alongside a desire to respond to expressed community needs, or the need to respond to political imperative. Several different approaches to improving the fit between research and practice are proposed, and they include improved education and training for practitioners, outcomes focussed program planning, and a more structured approach to rewarding research development and dissemination.

Evidence for success in health promotion: suggestions for improvement. (7/6496)This paper argues that health promotion needs to develop an approach to evaluation and effectiveness that values qualitative methodologies. It posits the idea that qualitative research could learn from the experience of quantitative researchers and promote more useful ways of measuring effectiveness by the use of intermediate and indirect indicators. It refers to a European-wide project designed to gather information on the effectiveness of health promotion interventions. This project discovered that there was a need for an instrument that allowed qualitative intervention methodologies to be assessed in the same way as quantitative methods. (+info)
What proportion of primary psychiatric interventions are based on evidence from randomised controlled trials? (8/6496)OBJECTIVES: To estimate the proportion of psychiatric inpatients receiving primary interventions based on randomised controlled trials or systematic reviews of randomised controlled trials. DESIGN: Retrospective survey. SETTING: Acute adult general psychiatric ward. SUBJECTS: All patients admitted to the ward during a 28 day period. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Primary interventions were classified according to whether or not they were supported by evidence from randomised controlled trials or systematic reviews. RESULTS: The primary interventions received by 26/40 (65%; 95% confidence interval (95% CI) 51% to 79%) of patients admitted during the period were based on randomised trials or systematic reviews. CONCLUSIONS: When patients were used as the denominator, most primary interventions given in acute general psychiatry were based on experimental evidence. The evidence was difficult to locate; there is an urgent need for systematic reviews of randomised controlled trials in this area. (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - Pioglitazone and metformin fixed-dose combination in type 2 diabetes mellitus. T2 - An evidence-based review of its place in therapy. AU - Derosa, Giuseppe. AU - Salvadeo, S. A T. PY - 2008. Y1 - 2008. N2 - Introduction: Type 2 diabetes mellitus, a metabolic disease with increasing incidence, is one of the most important cardiovascular risk factors. Insulin resistance represents the common mechanism that leads to type 2 diabetes in obese subjects. Metformin and the thiazolidinediones, pioglitazone and rosiglitazone, are insulin-sensitizing agents available for treatment of type 2 diabetes. Large clinical trials have demonstrated the effectiveness of both metformin and pioglitazone in reducing cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. The fixed-dose combination of metformin and pioglitazone appears to be a good option for treating diabetes in insulin-resistant patients. Aims: The purpose of this article is to review the place in therapy of a fixed-dose combination of pioglitazone ...

OBJECTIVE To develop evidence-based recommendations on how to investigate and follow-up undifferentiated peripheral inflammatory arthritis (UPIA). METHODS 697 rheumatologists from 17 countries participated in the 3E (Evidence, Expertise, Exchange) Initiative of 2008-9 consisting of three separate rounds of discussions and modified Delphi votes. In the first round 10 clinical questions were selected. A bibliographic team systematically searched Medline, Embase, the Cochrane Library and ACR/EULAR 2007-2008 meeting abstracts. Relevant articles were reviewed for quality assessment, data extraction and synthesis. In the second round each country elaborated a set of national recommendations. Finally, multinational recommendations were formulated and agreement among the participants and the potential impact on their clinical practice was assessed. RESULTS A total of 39,756 references were identified, of which 250 were systematically reviewed. Ten multinational key recommendations about the investigation

Evidence-Based Practice Centers Can Reduce Costs, Errors
Until now, the impact of evidence-based practice centers (EPCs) on hospital decision making has been relatively unclear-but new data from Penn Medicine researchers suggest that hospital EPCs can accurately distribute clinical evidence and are useful in influencing the stakeholder decision-making process.
Activity 4: Understand and have the capacity to implement evidence-based practices | Evidence-Based Decision Making
What Do We Mean By "Research Evidence"? In the justice system, the term "evidence" is used in a variety of ways. It can refer to items collected at a crime scene, eyewitness accounts, or security camera footage. These types of evidence are referred to as "legal evidence.". For the purposes of the EBDM initiative, however, the term "evidence" is used to describe findings from empirically sound social science research. The initiative refers to the results of this research as "evidence-based policy and practice.". ...
Teaching evidence-based practice on foot | Evidence-Based Nursing
In the first encounter, the nurse role modelsevidence-based practice (mode 1 in table 1⇑), combining the actual doing with the "think aloud" technique to guide the learners attention to what is being done. By using mode 1, we demonstrate to learners how we incorporate evidence, along with other knowledge, into clinical decisions, so that they come to see the use of evidence as part of good clinical practice. We show by example that we really do it, and we can give pointers on when, where, and how to do it, too. Given the maxim "actions speak louder than words," we can expect this first mode of teaching evidence-based practice to be very effective in and of itself, and it should reinforce what learners derive from other modes.. In the second encounter, the teacher weavesevidence in among the other facts and skills being taught (mode 2 in table 1⇑). When we teach clinical topics with evidence in the mix, we show by example how to integrate evidence with other useful knowledge in the context ...

Evidence-Based Medicine: An Introduction for Medical Students | UBC Medical Journal
Despite its recent development, evidence-based medicine (EBM) is increasingly being implemented in clinical practice, taught in medical schools, and relied upon in government policy-making. Although the principles guiding EBM may seem simple, the translation of scientific and clinical evidence into medical practice has inherent challenges. This review of EBM provides an overview of the history and development of EBM. In addition, we discuss some of the current academic groups that provide EBM resources, specifically the Cochrane Collaboration and the Therapeutics Initiative. We also present several challenges that face the practice of EBM and the barriers that persist in the medical curricula as educators strive to teach these concepts.. Full text (PDF, 484KB).

IS "EVIDENCE-BASED MEDICINE" AFFECTED BY INDUSTRY PAYOFFS?
Dont kid yourself. Big Corporations are never altruistic for the sake of being altruistic. They cant be. They have share-holders to keep happy. Every single thing they do and every move they make is predicated on making money and increasing market share. The bigger the corporation, the more money it takes to keep the wheels turning. The real question we need to be asking in light of this story is can we trust them? Can we trust "The Industries" mentioned (Big Pharma and medical device makers) to play nice? Are you kidding me? HERE are a few of my posts on Evidence-Based Medicine, revealing why it will never be the bell tower of truth that DR. GORSKI and others believe it to be. But these links dont even begin to tell the whole story --- not even the tip of the tip of the tip of the iceberg. This problem of COI in the medical industry is so prevalent that its basically winked at --- that is until someone gets caught. Then, by golly, they need to pay! This is always stated in the most ...

The evidence for evidence-based medicine | BC Medical Journal
Years ago, when the phrase "evidence-based medicine" was first being popularized, my friend and colleague Dr Bob Meek remarked, "Whats new about that?" He was correct; there was nothing new about the idea. In my experience, doctors have always tried to manage patients based on the best available evidence.. David Sackett, credited with popularizing evidence-based medicine defined it as the "conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients." Who could argue with that?. One group that seeks to impose unproven top-down protocols on clinicians calls itself EvidenceNetwork.ca. They show how one can hijack a theoretically good concept and manipulate the model to create what they believe are valid guidelines pertaining to clinical treatments in which they have little or no expertise. That particular group lists nonclinical self-proclaimed experts who offer "expert guidance" in those areas.. I believe there are two kinds of ...
Manchester Royal Infirmary
Updated 13 June 2016. We rated medical care services as Good overall because;. Care was provided in line with national best practice guidelines and medical care services participated in the majority of clinical audits where they were eligible to take part. National audits indicated that the majority of patients experienced good outcomes. Improvements had been made in the provision of stroke care although some improvements were still required. Action plans were in progress where areas for improvement had been identified. There was a focus on discharge planning from the moment of admission and there was good multidisciplinary working to support this.. Incidents were reported and investigated appropriately. Lessons were learnt and improvements made following incidents and findings were fed back to staff. There were systems in place to keep people safe and staff were aware of how to ensure patients were safeguarded from abuse. The hospital was clean and staff followed good hygiene practices. ...
Development of Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guidelines for Diabetes | Diabetes Care
In this work, we described the development of evidence-based guidelines for the care of patients with diabetes by primary care practitioners, using glycemic and blood pressure control and retinal screening as examples. The careful review and analysis of an independently prepared, evidence-based synthesis by a multispecialty panel of experts provided the best available evidence to the working group. Guidelines are meant to be applicable to large and complex health care systems and yet to empower the process of individual patient-practitioner counseling and goal setting based on individual risk stratification. The VA/DoD Clinical Guidelines for Treatment of Diabetes are intended to be a unifying standard of medical practice for the two largest agencies in the federal health care system that provide direct health care.. Some may criticize certain recommendations as being economically motivated with a design to minimize short-term costs. However, any target value endorsed by a guideline obligates ...

Evidence-Based Medicine - Physician, Clinical, Drug, and Trial - JRank Articles
Evidence-based medicine refers to an approach to the teaching and practice of medicine that developed in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The approach emphasizes that medicine should be practiced according to evidence that can be assayed on the basis of its quality. The idea is that from among competing claims that physicians might face concerning various courses of action they might take, they can choose a course from evidence that has been assessed rigorously and presented systematically.. An influential aspect of the evidence-based medicine approach has been the Cochrane corroboration which is a collaboration of physicians and scientists who undertake detailed, systematic reviews of the evidence surrounding given courses of action. They attempt to gather all relevant information, including research that was conducted to a high standard but its results were not published. (Failure to publish the results of clinical trials appears to be common in the pharmaceutical industry, where there is no ...
Post-Stroke Depression and Mood Disorders | EBRSR - Evidence-Based Review of Stroke Rehabilitation
A variety of emotional and behavioural disorders may develop following stroke. In stroke, prevalence rates of depression and anxiety have been reported to be as high as 24% and 29% respectively. These rates may be influenced by a combination of factors such as age, sex, socioeconomic factors, functional independence post-stroke, and the presence of cognitive disorders post-stroke which play a crucial role in an individuals emotional well-being and can significantly impact recovery. Many studies have investigated pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment options for post-stroke mood disturbances; however, no consensus has been reached regarding the most effective and viable treatment option available although the most effective treatment option appears to be pharmacological. This chapter explores the evidence of the various interventions on reducing post-stroke depression and other mood disorders, and delves into the possible risk factors that can facilitate the occurrence of post-stroke ...

New developments in the treatment and management of phenylketonuria (PKU) as well as advances in molecular testing have emerged since the National Institutes of Health 2000 PKU Consensus Statement was released. An NIH State-of-the-Science Conference was convened in 2012 to address new findings, particularly the use of the medication sapropterin to treat some individuals with PKU, and to develop a research agenda. Prior to the 2012 conference, five working groups of experts and public members met over a 1-year period. The working groups addressed the following: long-term outcomes and management across the lifespan; PKU and pregnancy; diet control and management; pharmacologic interventions; and molecular testing, new technologies, and epidemiologic considerations. In a parallel and independent activity, an Evidence-based Practice Center supported by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality conducted a systematic review of adjuvant treatments for PKU; its conclusions were presented at the ...

Of studies, syntheses, synopses, and systems: the "4S" evolution of services for finding current best evidence | Evidence-Based...
Practical resources to support evidence-based healthcare decisions are rapidly evolving. New and better services are being created through the combined forces of increasing numbers of clinically important studies, increasingly robust evidence synthesis and synopsis services, and better information technology and systems. The need for these resources is spurred by demands for higher quality at lower cost from health services, but the impact of better information resources is being blunted by noisy pretenders promising "the earth" but yielding just the dirt. Providers and consumers of evidence-based health care can help themselves to best current evidence by recognising and using the most evolved information services for the topics that concern them.. The figure provides a "4S" hierarchical structure, with original "studies" at the base, "syntheses" (systematic reviews) of evidence just above the base, "synopses" of studies and syntheses next up, and the most evolved evidence-based information ...

Anemia in HIV Infection: Clinical Impact and Evidence-Based Management Strategies
In a pre-HAART study of 112 patients (62 of whom were HIV seropositive and 50 of whom were HIV seronegative) by Darko et al., 50% of HIV-positive subjects (who at that time had disease classified as CDC stage IV) reported that fatigue interfered with their daily activities, whereas none of the comparison subjects (whose disease was classified as CDC stage III or who were HIV negative) reported problems with fatigue. Employment problems and sleep disturbances were shown to contribute to morbidity and disability in the HIV-infected group. In a later study of 427 patients by Breitbart et al., 52.7% of subjects responded positively to both the "lack of energy" item on the Memorial Symptom Assessment Scale and the "persistent or frequent fatigue" item on the AIDS-specific Physical Symptom Checklist and were subsequently classified as having fatigue. Serum hemoglobin levels (available from a subset of 176 fatigued patients) were significantly lower than in nonfatigued patients (P < .02). A substudy of ...
DRG, BSC and EBM: time to work with one another | BMC Health Services Research | Full Text
The practice of evidence-based medicine (EBM) at the DRG level, and the link between DRGs and evidence-based management, will make the DRG system more of an aid by providing an opportunity to produce clinical guidelines and set policy and regulations. Evidence-based medicine attempts to ensure the best prediction of outcomes in medical treatment. It does this through identification of problems, specification of intervention, and the comparison and evaluation of outcomes of treatments.. It is a possibility that practicing EBM for DRG classes in which homogeneous patients with similar clinical and resource intensity conditions have been classified will make DRGs more popular and useful to physicians and health professionals. Then, they will have less of a tendency to regard DRGs as an invasive tool whose purpose is to control the cost of health services at the price of quality. The classification of a homogeneous patient into a DRG class provides the opportunity to collect strong evidence on the ...

Multivitamin/mineral Supplements - Health Professional Fact Sheet
In 2006, researchers published a comprehensive evidence-based review of the relationship between studies on nutrients that most strongly suggested potential impacts on health and on conditions (cancer; age-related sensory loss; and cardiovascular, endocrine, neurologic, musculoskeletal, gastroenterologic, renal, and pulmonary diseases) on which experts believe that nutrient supplements have the most potential influence . Considering only published randomized, controlled clinical trials, the investigators found that use of MVMs did not reduce the risk of any chronic disease. (The authors defined MVMs as products containing three or more vitamins and minerals at levels below the UL and no herbs).. An expert panel that reviewed this report and participated in a state-of-the-science conference on MVMs in chronic disease prevention at the National Institutes of Health in 2006 concluded that the present evidence is insufficient to recommend either for or against the use of MVMs by the American ...

Innovation , Health Care Advocacy , Evidence-based Medicine. Purchasers of health care - employers, consumers and public agencies - for decades have experienced record growth in spending. Yet evidence does not support that there has been a corresponding improvement in quality and a return on these investments. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that up to 30 percent of care delivered in the United States goes toward unnecessary tests, procedures, doctor visits, hospital stays and other services that may not improve peoples health - and, in fact, may actually cause harm.. It is urgent that physicians and patients work together to make wise treatment decisions - that means helping patients choose care that is supported by evidence that it works on patients like them, it is not duplicative (meaning that it isnt a test or procedure that they already received from another doctor), it wont harm them, and that it is truly necessary. It is equally important that more evidence-based guidelines ...

Commentary: Specialty Pharmacy Focus on Evidence-Based Medicine Improves Patient Outcomes and Manages Health Care Costs
Practicing according to the principles of evidence-based medicine involves the application of national practice guidelines, current clinical research, and experience to guide the diagnosis of a condition and selection of appropriate treatment. Although this practice is important in all fields of health care today, it is becoming increasingly important in specialty pharmacy. Given that drug spending for specialty pharmaceuticals is growing at 2.5 times the rate of nonspecialty spending1 and that total health care costs for specialty patients are 17.5 times higher than nonspecialty patients,2 increased focus has been placed on the use of specialty medications and concern over how to manage costs while ensuring appropriate utilization and quality care.. Specialty pharmacy is a growing area of pharmacy practice focused on providing drug therapy management and dispensing services for patients requiring treatment with medications that are used to treat rare, chronic, or genetic conditions.

Better Information for Better Health Care: The Evidence-based Practice Center Program and the Agency for Healthcare Research...
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality has pursued its commitment to evidence-based practice through research and programs that have produced important new information about the benefits, risks, costs, and cost-effectiveness of specific treatments and technologies for common and costly conditions such as back pain, prostate disease, and pneumonia (5-7). Perhaps the most visible commitment to evidence-based practice was AHRQs support of a clinical practice guideline program that produced 19 guidelines from 1990 to 1996 (http://www.ahrq.gov/clinic/cpgonline.htm) on important conditions such as heart failure and otitis media (8). A program initially requested by Congress, the guidelines proved popular with many stakeholders, and their explicit methods helped elevate the standards for evidence-based guidelines. At the same time, they also revealed limitations of centrally developed, government-sponsored guidelines. The process of convening individual panels, commissioning background ...

Evidence-based medicine, appropriate-use criteria, and sports medicine: How best to develop meaningful treatment guidelines |...
We propose using appropriate-use criteria (AUC) as the methodology of choice for formulating and disseminating evidence-based medicine guidelines in sports medicine and arthroscopy. AUC provide a structured process for integrating findings from the scientific literature with clinical judgment to produce explicit criteria for determining the appropriateness of specific treatments. The use of AUC will enable surgeons to treat patients in a more consistent manner based on expert clinical consensus and evidence-based medicine.

Team Six Supplements Epicenter: An Evidence-Based Review - SuppWithThat.com
Ashwagandha is one of the most widely studied adaptogenic (helps body adapt to stress) herbs on the planet. Its use dates back to before there was written records and it is alleged to have a wide range of health applications, mostly relating to the fact that it can reduce stress (both physical indications and mental perception).. We discuss the anti-stress benefits of Ashwagandha in this article, but in the context of Epicenter, Team Six Supplements is likely concerned with preliminary research which indicates Ashwagandha can increase Testosterone slightly, but enough to elicit muscle and strength gains.. Further research has confirmed that Ashwagandha (KSM-66) can restore sex hormone levels and sperm count in instances of infertility, adding to the notion that it is indeed an effective natural Testosterone boosting agent.. Epicenter contains a standardized, reliable form of Ashwagandha known as KSM-66. We generally recommend either KSM-66 or Sensoril, as the liklihood that a non-brand name ...
AI Sports Stoked XT: An Evidence-Based Review - SuppWithThat.com
Safed Musli is an Indian herb which has traditionally been used as an aphrodisiac and remedy for sexual dysfunction.. A 2011 study, published in "Andrologia", found that mice fed Safed Musli experienced improved erectile function on par with low dose Testosterone treatment.. No studies have directly tested the effects of Safed Musli on testosterone, but a 2009 study noted increased prostatic weigh in mice fed 200mg/kg/day for 30 days, indicative of increased Testosterone.. Unfortuantely, this study did not measure serum Testosterone, so it cant be definitively stated that the results were due to increased Testosterone.. Due to the lack of human studies, Safed Musli still has a long way to go before it can be considered an effective test-booster, but the preliminary evidence suggests that, at the very least, it may enhance libido and improve sexual health. So, in the context of Stoked XT, it makes sense.. ...

Did your hospital, like so many, abruptly switch from povidone-iodine antiseptic solution to ChloraPrep® for cleaning a patients skin before surgery? If so, Im sure the staff was told that ChloraPrep would be more effective and cheaper. No doubt, they were also warned of the extra precautions that must be taken with ChloraPrep to prevent operating room fires, since ChloraPrep contains highly flammable 70% isopropyl alcohol in addition to chlorhexidine.

Using cognitive pre-testing methods in the development of a new evidenced-based pressure ulcer risk assessment instrument | BMC...
Variation in development methods of Pressure Ulcer Risk Assessment Instruments has led to inconsistent inclusion of risk factors and concerns about content validity. A new evidenced-based Risk Assessment Instrument, the Pressure Ulcer Risk Primary Or Secondary Evaluation Tool - PURPOSE-T was developed as part of a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) funded Pressure Ulcer Research Programme (PURPOSE: RP-PG-0407-10056). This paper reports the pre-test phase to assess and improve PURPOSE-T acceptability, usability and confirm content validity. A descriptive study incorporating cognitive pre-testing methods and integration of service user views was undertaken over 3 cycles comprising PURPOSE-T training, a focus group and one-to-one think-aloud interviews. Clinical nurses from 2 acute and 2 community NHS Trusts, were grouped according to job role. Focus group participants used 3 vignettes to complete PURPOSE-T assessments and then participated in the focus group. Think-aloud participants were

OBJECTIVE To provide health care providers, patients, and the general public with a responsible assessment of currently available data regarding the use of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) for diagnosis and therapy. PARTICIPANTS A non-Federal, non-advocate, 13-member panel representing the fields of gastroenterology, hepatology, clinical epidemiology, oncology, biostatistics, surgery, health services research, radiology, internal medicine, and the public. In addition, experts in these same fields presented data to the panel and to a conference audience of approximately 300. EVIDENCE Presentations by experts; a systematic review of the medical literature provided by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality; and an extensive bibliography of ERCP research papers, prepared by the National Library of Medicine. Scientific evidence was given precedence over clinical anecdotal experience. CONFERENCE PROCESS Answering predefined questions, the panel drafted a statement based on
Classifying scientific evidence as the basis for evidence-based decision making: is strength of evidence absolute? | Evidence...
From the clinical perspective, the study design and the ensuing LOE classification may not always be the most important factor to consider while assessing the available evidence. Occasionally, even a well conducted RCT may not necessarily generate new knowledge superior to the knowledge gained from a case series study. Thus an RCT may be less significant to the clinical decision making than a case series study. For example, when a clinician assesses the benefits and risks of a possible treatment modality, the use of LOE alone can be misleading. An historical example is the use of Bisphosphonates for dental purposes:. Bisphosphonates (BPs) are a class of drugs that inhibit bone resorption and they are successfully used across a wide range of medical disciplines for bone diseases (Molvik & Khan 2015; Costa 2014; Anagha & Sen 2014; Giusti 2014; Bhatt et al. 2014; Eriksen et al. 2014). However, like any drug, BPs possess the risk of side effects. BPs-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) has been ...

Evidence-based decision-making is central to the practice of pediatrics. Clinical trials and other biomedical research provide a foundation for this process, and practice guidelines, drawing from their results, inform the optimal management of an increasing number of childhood health problems. However, many clinicians fail to adhere to guidelines. Clinical decision support delivered using health information technology, often in the form of electronic health records, provides a tool to deliver evidence-based information to the point of care and has the potential to overcome barriers to evidence-based practice. An increasing literature now informs how these systems should be designed and implemented to most effectively improve outcomes in pediatrics. Through the examples of computerized physician order entry, as well as the impact of alerts at the point of care on immunization rates, the delivery of evidence-based asthma care, and the follow-up of children with attention deficit hyperactivity ...
