Evidence-based medicine (EBM) uses real data to help determine the best mode of treatment for patients. It often requires young physicians to question treatments that they have been taught and to think outside the box. It also integrates expertise at the clinical research level, using physician knowledge and recorded patient outcomes to help make treatment decisions.
The Steadman Philippon Research Institute, world-renown for its orthopedic research and clinical studies, implements evidence-based medicine at all levels. Dr. LaPrade is the director of biomechanics research at the Institute and uses evidence-based approaches with his own patients. In this feature, he discusses and highlights why EBM is so important to new medical students and offers insight into how to get started and implement this approach at the clinical level.
