End of Evidence Based Medicine

Professor Victor Montori (The Mayo Clinic)

The past 20 years saw an evolution in the idea of evidence based medicine (EBM) founded on two principles: one is most confident about a decision based on high-quality evidence, and evidence from clinical care research alone is insufficient to make a sound decision requiring the incorporation of patient context and preferences.

In this same period there is evolving realisation of the multitude of ways in which the evidence can be corrupted by poor methods, misleading design and dissemination of results, and fraud. As a result, this paradigm of practice is in crisis. This talk will substantiate these points and offer some ideas on a way out.
