“Evidence-based Medicine/Evidence-based Dentistry"
In other areas, including dentistry, evidence-based approaches follow three principles: systematic summaries of the best evidence are required to deliver optimal care; some evidence is more credible then other evidence; and patient values and preferences are crucial to decision-making. Clinicians often rely on clinical practice guidelines that can be trustworthy or untrustworthy – evidence-based guidelines will meet standards of trustworthiness.
Major Topics:
Principles of evidence-based clinical practice.
Principles of trustworthy guidelines.
Attendees will learn:
  1. To understand the three key principles of evidence-based practice.
  2. To understand how to interpret results of studies of alternative management strategies.
  3. To understand how to differentiate a trustworthy from untrustworthy guidelines.
