The article focuses on the examination of evidence-based medicine (EBM) in medicine. EBM's contribution in the clinical practice has long been used in the development of institutional and professional guidelines in health promotion and other disciplines. It presents how EBM diverged from the early anti-authoritarian practices. It also discusses the significance of EBM being the subject of critical discussions regarding its nature of evidence. Details on other EBM assumptions are also discussed.
