This booklet challenges the current dogmatic approach to Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM), dominated by randomized controlled trials and meta-analyses. Highlighting concerns voiced by experts like Epstein, Charlton, and Miles, it argues for the need to balance literature assessment with medical knowledge and clinical judgment. Through insightful quotes and critical analysis, it presents a compelling case for revisiting and reforming EBM practices. Discover the other side of the coin and join the call for a more balanced and comprehensive approach to medical education and practice.
