The steps of practicing EBM:

  1. Ask a focused question.
  2. Track down the evidence
  3. Critically appraise evidence for its validity, effect size, precision
  4. Apply the evidence in practice:
  • Amalgamate the valid evidence with other relevant information (values & preferences, clinical/health issues, & system issues)
  • Implement the decision in practice
