How Evidence-based Medicine is Not Well Incorporated in Clinical Practice

Evidence-based medicine refers to medical practices that undergo rigorous assessments in clinical trials and other research methodologies so that their effectiveness as well as safety can be established. The adoption of practices based on evidence offers the best treatment options for patients. A recent article written in the Vox by Eric M. Patashnik, the Julis-Rabinowitz professor of public policy and a professor of political science at Brown University, and co-author of Unhealthy Politics: The Battle over Evidence-Based Medicine explains the reluctance of the American doctors in wholeheartedly adopting evidence-based medicine into their clinical practice.
