Evidence-Based Public Health


Evidence-based medicine (EBM)/Evidence-based public health (EBPH) is the explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients and improving the health of populations. This includes identifying the problem, stating the question, searching the literature, appraising, applying the evidence, and evaluation of its effectiveness. EBM and EBPH have grown rapidly over the last 20 years. Physicians and Public Health Actors are expected to master the knowledge and skills that enable them to generate and critically appraise evidence.
