Why is Evidence-Based Medicine Important?

Principles of evidence-based medicine suggest that you do things that are known to make a difference to the outcome. At the same time, you make sure that everything you do is consistent with the values and wishes of the patient. This should be presumed as the cornerstone of modern medical practice.

In this humanistic view of health care, you’re not supposed to subject people to risks without some reasonable expectation of helping them.

The resources at the bottom of this page support the idea of combining patient-centered health care with solid logical thinking.
