Clinical guidelines: Beware, what are suggestions will become mandates
from Orthopedics Today
Orthopedic surgeons are trying to incorporate "evidence-based medicine" at the same time they are trying to understand this concept. For the current practitioner, it is a blend of his or her interpretation of the existing applicable literature, clinical experience and what is presented at scientific meetings. A more rigid definition of it is clinical practice that "systematically finds, appraises, and uses the most current and valid research findings as the basis for clinical decisions."
