|Abstract:||Evidence based medicine is based on a strong ethical and clinical ideal—that it allows the best evaluated methods of health care to be identified and enables patients and doctors to make better informed decisions Evidence based medicine is unable to resolve competing claims of different interest groups Collecting sufficient satisfactory evidence raises problems—randomised controlled trials are only possible where there is genuine “therapeutic equipoise”|
