How do we implement Evidence-Based Medicine?

An interesting editorial article published in the European Society of Sports Traumatology, Knee Surgery, Arthroscopy (ESSKA) June 2017.

The article talks about how the obsession about a significant P value in research papers may not be the most accurate way of interpreting research findings and how large high-quality observational studies can provide useful information even if they are not RCTs.

As clinicians, it is crucial I think that we know how to sift through and accurately evaluate all the evidence that are being published so that we may implement evidence-based medicine in a beneficial way to our patients.
