Tools For Outcome Research

Uday Venkat M1, Anantha Naik N2

Abstract: Evidence-based medicine (EBM) is relatively new disciplines that use quantitative tools to assess the value of information, differentiate fact from myth, and integrate so-called best evidence into multivariate models for the assessment of prognosis, response to therapy, selection of laboratory tests, and other complex problems that influence individual safe and effective patient care. The basic principle of evidence based medicine (EBM) is to treat the patient where there is evidence of benefit and not to treat where there is evidence of no benefit (or harm). This article introduces to the critical appraisal of randomized controlled trial, meta-analyses and systematic reviews to guide their evidence-based clinical practice.

 
What is Evidence Based Medicine: Evidence based medicine is the conscientious, explicit and judicious current best evidence in making decisions about the care of the individual patient. The basic principle of evidence based medicine (EBM) is to treat the patient where there is evidence of benefit and not to treat where there is evidence of no benefit (or harm). It is the procedure of systemically reviewing, appraisal, and using clinical research findings to aid the rescue of optimal clinical care to patients.1, 2 The main advantages of evidence based medicine has the potential to reduce health-care costs significantly, to determine and maintain consistently high quality and safety standards in medical practice and can help speed up the process of transferring clinical research findings into practice.
