NEW YORK, Nov. 5 announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue.

Evidence-Based Medicine: Current Use and Future Impact on Global Clinical and Reimbursement Practices

Evidence-based medicine is defined as an attempt to use standards from scientifically-collected evidence to improve medical practices by assessing risks and benefits of treatments and/or the lack of treatments. The term can be taken to cover a wide variety of recommendations and guidelines, as well as the basis for decisions regarding pharmaceutical reimbursement. This one-of-a-kind report discusses evidence-based medicine in a variety of its guises, illustrating the pervasive nature of evidence-based decisions in healthcare and pharmaceutical environments.

In recent years, evidence-based medicine has emerged as one of the most pertinent topics of discussion within the field of medicine, involving - on the one hand - patients and - on the other - a variety of healthcare policy-makers, practitioners and regulators. In the United Kingdom, evidence-based practice has been implemented in a variety of fields, including adult medicine, child health, surgery, pathology, pharmacotherapy, nursing, general practice, and dentistry, as well as in the field of pharmaceutical reimbursement. Evidence-based medicine has also been practiced by the governments of Canada and Australia for some time, while Germany, Japan and the United States have more recently begun to utilize evidence-based medicine for both private and public reimbursement.

The opening chapters of this report provide a brief history of evidence-based medicine, main definitions and the limitations and advantages of the concept. Subsequent chapters discuss the use and applicability of evidence-based medicine in various therapeutic areas, followed by a discussion of evidence-based medicine in six major global medical and pharmaceutical markets. The first three of these (namely Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom) are seen as pioneers in the utilization of evidence-based medicine, while the other three (namely Germany, Japan and the United States) have more recently become interested in wider applicability of such practices.

The final chapter discusses the future prospects for evidence-based medicine, setting out, on the one hand, the list of factors driving wider application of such practices. On the other, the report analyses a number of constraints to the use of evidence-based medicine, which include a range of practical considerations, such as a lack of time and information overload, as well as more culture-specific resistance to compliance with imposed guidelines.
