Information provision in medical libraries: An evidence based approach

It specifically proffers meaning to the term evidence as used in evidence based practice and to evidence based medicine from where evidence based practice evolved. The EBM model was also examined as well as issues and critique on the use of evidence in practice. The way forward in encouraging the use of evidence in practice was also discussed.
