An Overview of Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) Resources


This session introduces library databases and journals relevant to EBM. The quality and level of evidence in research may depend on study design. Clinical practice guidelines, systematic reviews, and meta-analysis are considered the gold standards in finding the best evidence, while understanding the essential structures of EBM are essential to deciphering the reliability of research.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify and access library resources relevant to EBM
  • Apply database search limiters to find the best evidence
  • Use library EBM resources to filter for preferred study designs
