Show Notes

In this episode, Marc and Mo discuss the origins of the term “Evidence-Based Medicine,” the subsequent development of the “Evidence-Based Orthopaedics” section in JBJS, and how the dissemination of clear summaries of evidence-based information from across the literature has the potential to influence clinical decision-making.
