Evidence Based Research

Evidence Based Research is a systematic process that integrates clinical expertise and patient choices with the best available research.  This practice requires the ability to perform an efficient search of the literature and to critically evaluate the quality of information found. 

Appraising the evidence requires a knowledge of types of evidence and basic study design.
