Abstract

Learning and teaching evidence-based medicine principles have become core components of undergraduate and postgraduate medical curricula, largely with the information "consumer" or "end-user," in mind. This chapter provides an overview of some guiding principles for effective clinical investigators and the implications of evidence-based practice on research publication and subsequent data use. For those individuals with inadequate time or access to such formal programs, there are numerous resources available to support evidence-based practice and research. A few representative leading resources are described here. JAMA evidence a comprehensive reference for investigators and clinicians. Center for Evidence-Based Medicine contains an extensive list of online evidence-based medicine resources and links to the contemporary research and publications. The enhancing the quality and transparency of health research (EQUATOR) Network is an online resource dedicated to enhancing reporting of research.
