Evidence-generating research and evidence-based medicine


  • Glenn Jones (McMaster University & Credit Valley Hospital, Canada)

As it matures, it will be widely applied, and with further development it may become a complete Theory of Medical Choice. Experience with Evidence-Based Medicine can inform the broader pursuit of an Evidence-Influenced Society.
