Improving Healthcare Quality with Evidence-Based Medicine
MetadataShow full item record
Physicians in recent years felt increasing pressure to work for long hours and to see more patients even though they have few hours in their normal routine hours to dedicate to self and continuing education. Physician usually makes their clinical decisions based on their own practical experience. Although these ways may be time efficient but it might not provide the best care decision when it comes to the patient. In EBM, physicians seeking additional information pose questions that guide research for ideal literature. During a normal single day, a physician can generate as many as 8 clinical questions, finding the most suitable answer which could then alter the physician way of management. Physicians need to practice EBM correctly but lack of time is a major issue as reported in the literature that an average practicing clinician spend less than one hour weekly reading evidence based information. Therefore busy physicians need to learn new technologies that would make practicing EBM more feasible.
