An Introduction to Evidence-Based Medicine

  • What is Evidence-Based Medicine and why is it important when making decisions about our health?
  • How can we find out if a treatment is effective and safe?
  • Why is it important to look behind the headlines?

We explore these questions, and more, in the video below. The content is aimed at sixth form students hoping to study medicine at university. It will also be of interest more generally to those interested in learning about evidence and how to critically question health information and advice.
