Evidence-Based Medicine and Pediatrics
The informed pediatrician, one who is aware of current medical research relevant to patient care, is evolving. Although many pediatricians are becoming better connected to current evidence, many barriers remain to its full incorporation into care. Information science and technology offer potential solutions to overcome these barriers to bring evidence to the point-of-care for effective decision making and for continuous professional development of pediatricians.
