Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This communication contextualizes the importance of clinical experience or experience-based medicine within the current paradigm of evidence-based medicine, complementing our previously published series of five short educational articles on evidence-based medicine. Previously we focused on optimizing medical decisions using publications of well-conducted research. Previous commentaries included a backgrounder, the hierarchy of evidence, data acquisition, tools for critical appraisal, and clinical use of evidence based medicine.
