Evidence based health

- Evidence based health refers to the process of explicit, judicious use of best available findings from primary and secondary research on health studies and application of those findings to solve real problems in conjunction or collaboration with the stakeholders (these could be patients, other providers, and insurers, and others).
- Essentially involves four steps - 1. Frame a research question, 2-Search literature, 3-Critically Appraise literature data to find out biases and develop evidence portfolio by abstraction of numbers from the articles and other information, 4-Application of that knowledge to the particular problem at hand (could be patient based problems, could be other health care based problems)
- Framing of research question is best conducted by taking any question and converting that into a PICO formatted question, where P = Patient, person, or population, I = intervention or exposure, C = comparison group, and O = outcomes
- These questions are then converted to a series of Boolean or Fuzzy logic based search strategies to search databases. Such databases include Pubmed for most biomedical literature databases, or other databases relevant to your field of inquiry
- Full texts of important articles and resources are then obtained and stored and then analysed to identify information that are essential to make decisions. Typically this includes an appraisal of the quality of the study by studying the possibility of biased research, and data are abstracted in the form of point estimates, confidence intervals, and risk estimates that are then converted to absolute risk estimates
- These are then applied to the problem at hand to understand what evidence based approaches look like in responding to the problem at hand

In this collection, we shall review each of these issues in turn in various stages. Here are the hash terms to use in this collection: #evidence, #framing, #search, #appraisal, #critical_appraisal, #clinical_epidemiology, #full_text_pdf, #citation, #risk

We’ve come a long way when it comes to sharing and reviewing newly published research in the past few years. The advent of services such as Altmetric (Altmetric.com, 2016a) has opened up a new window of insight into the impact of articles, and for better and worse it has allowed us to see discussions from every peer and media outlet that cared to comment on a work. Yet in an age where data on anything and everything—from what’s wasting your phone...
