Tutor description

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. • Explain the process of evidence-based analysis. • Highlight the major players and their roles in EBM policy (i.e., government, providers, patients, etc.). • Explain the EBM “Levels of Evidence” as defined in your course text. • Review the case “Constraints of the ACA on Evidence-Based Medicine.” • Provide a written analysis of the case “Constraints of the ACA on Evidence-Based Medicine” in Chapter 9 of your textbook.

For both groups, ourpurpose is to shed some light on what EBM is and is not and the steps involved in practicingEBM and to explain why it is important to athletic training. The more athletic trainersunderstand about EBM, the more they will see the benefits of making it a part of theprofession. This article is the first in a series of articles planned for the Journal of AthleticTraining on the concept of EBM. Although this article serves as the overview, future articleswill describe in much greater detail how to perform a literature search and then appraise theevidence.What Is Evidence-Based Medicine?The definition of EBM comes from Sackett et al,1 who stated that it is the integration of thebest research evidence with clinical expertise and patient values to make clinical decisions.The notion that clinical judgments should be based on the best available research is not new.In fact, this concept can be found in writings as far back as the mid-19th century.2The evidence referred to in EBM is patient centered, clinically relevant research found in themedical literature on diagnostic tests, treatment techniques, preventive programs, andprognostic markers. Evidence-based medicine focuses on research dealing with the day-today practice of patient care. The evidence may prove or disprove
