EBM Steps

Assess

1. Start with the patient -- a clinical problem or question arises out of the care of the patient

Ask

2. Construct a well built clinical question derived from the case 

Acquire

3. Select the appropriate resource(s) and conduct a search

Appraise

4. Appraise that evidence for its validity (closeness to the truth) and applicability (usefulness in clinical practice)

Apply

5. Return to the patient -- integrate that evidence with clinical expertise, patient preferences and apply it to practice

Self-evaluation

6. Evaluate your performance with this patient
