Evidence Based Medicine Guide: Module 4: Apply
Applying the Evidence
Even if you have found the evidence to be valid, significant and generalizable from the study population to your patient, you must still decide how — or whether — to apply the findings to your patient's care. The evidence alone is never enough, and the last step of the EBM process arguably requires the most skill. It is here that you synthesize the best scientific knowledge with your clinical expertise and the patient's unique values and circumstances to reach a clinical decision.
