The practice of evidence-based medicine is the ideal to which all clinicians should aspire. As defined by Sackett and colleagues (1996) evidence-based medicine is "the conscientious and judicious use of current best evidence from clinical care research in the management of individual patients." The "conscientious use" of clinical evidence implies a persistent pattern of review of current and emerging research by clinicians seeking to improve patient-centered outcomes and the efficiency of their practice. The evidence should be the "current best evidence," implying that the studies reviewed are the most methodologically sound studies available, and that clinicians understand and apply criteria for determining the validity and accuracy of the study results. Lastly, the clinician understands that ultimately he or she must use their informed judgment to determine if the results of a particular study apply to their "individual patients," and whether or not their practice habits will be altered by the study findings.
