Evidence-based clinical practice is a growing trend in medicine and is part of the curriculum here at Palmer.
Evidence-Based Clinical Practice
Evidence-based clinical practice is based on the concept of evidence-based medicine (EBM).
What is evidence-based medicine?
Evidence-based medicine is the integration of research evidence into the practice of medicine. Clinicians are encouraged to use the latest and most reliable research when treating individual patients. In order to do so, they must be familiar with research methods and be able to critically appraise current medical literature.
Why would chiropractors use an evidence-based approach?
Research and knowledge of best practices are constantly evolving, and chiropractic students are educated and trained in the best and most current practices. However, in an evidence-based approach, practicing clinicians continue their education, combining current evidence with their own clinical expertise and patient input in order to provide the most effective care.
