Evidence based practice (EBP) is the "conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients. Evidence-based clinical practice requires integration of individual clinical experience and patient preferences with the best available external clinical evidence from systematic research and consideration of available resources." (Guyatt, Gordon, et al. Users' Guide to the Medical Literature. 2nd ed. New York: McGraw Hill, 2008.)
The information in this Guide is informed by and loosely based on Chapter 4, Finding the Evidence, from the Users' Guide to the Medical Literature.
