Abstract

The terms `evidence' and 'evidence-based practice' are now common place in health care literature. Government reports make increasing use of these terms and seek to encourage all health professionals to base their practice on sound evidence (Department of Health (DOH) 1996, 1997, 1998; Scottish Office, 1997, 1998, 1998b). So what exactly is `evidence based practice' and where did the term come from?
