This book gives us a second chance to familiarize ourselves with the principles and practice of evidence-based medicine (EBM). This decade has reminded us of the importance of scientific evidence as the basis for making clinical decisions. A series of articles in journals such as JAMA and BMJ (British Medical Journal) and books on EBM have been exhorting us to search for published data, appraise them critically, and determine if they are valid and applicable to our own unique clinical situations. This message has permeated our awareness, albeit slowly, replacing familiar experiential, authority-based thinking.
