The Basics of Medical Evidence:

On average, physicians spend less than two minutes seeking an answer to a medical question.

  1. Medical evidence is a form of expert evidence. Medical evidence can take many forms. It can include a doctor’s clinical notes or records, and the forms a doctor completes and sends to WorkSafeBC on a regular basis.[1]
  2. Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) According to definition Evidence Based Medicine represents integration of clinical expertise, patient’s values and best available evidence in process of decision making related to patients health care.[2]
  3. Real-world Evidence is the clinical evidence regarding the usage and potential benefits or risks of a medical product derived from analysis of RWD. RWE can be generated by different study designs or analyses, including but not limited to, randomized trials, including large simple trials, pragmatic trials, and observational studies (prospective and/or retrospective). Real-world evidence makes use of data from populations that are better representative of real practice than those studied in clinical trials. Real-world evidence can help validate results observed in clinical trials or fill in knowledge gaps when trial data is lacking.
