Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) – What It Is and Why We Have It

Jonathan Marx, MBA
GoToHealth Media, LLC
LIVE Wednesday July 28, 2021
12:00pm PST (GMT-8), 3:00pm EST

Jonathan discusses “Evidence-Based Medicine – EBM” – the standards that guide medical science and practice in the United States and many countries around the world.  EBM is the ideal that healthcare professionals should make “conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best evidence” in their everyday practice.

We discuss the Covid-19 pandemic, driven by the novel SARS CoV-2 virus,  which has offered the public an unusual glance into the medical scientific methods of gathering data, understanding and coding the virus, developing vaccines, and putting them through the rigorous clinical trial process to bring life-saving solutions to the marketplace.

You will also learn the terms “meta-analysis”, “systematic reviews”, and the “clinical trial” and “drug approval” process, so that when you hear or read these terms in the news, you are better informed as to what is happening in research and actions taken by our various health agencies.

Various examples of the developing science behind diseases and disorders will be used so that you better understand the scientific method behind medicine today, and you can distinguish between established facts, unsubstantiated rumors, and the development of medical knowledge.
