Evidence-based medicine (EBM), previously translational medicine, can be
defined as improving care based on empirical research and/or hands-on
practice. The EBM’s approach is based on either direct patient care
(bottom-up) or an experiment translated into guidelines (top-down). EBM
is used in either in conjunction or as quality assessment tool(s) for
continuous quality improvement (CQI). The healthcare leader must utilize
the evidence to promote healthcare quality.
