Course Number: 311

Benefits of EBDM

EBDM provides a strategy for improving the efficiency of integrating new evidence into patient care more rapidly by helping you manage an increasing amount of information. EBDM assists you in developing treatment plans and providing treatment and advice that are scientifically defensible. In addition, it helps ensure that your practice is continually informed and strengthened by current research findings, helping to close the gap between what is known (research evidence) and what is practiced.

EBDM is not about knowing all the answers, but rather about knowing how to structure good questions to be able to find relevant information to better inform your decision making, and how and when to integrate new thinking and action into everyday practice.
