Continuing Education is a Component of Evidence-Based Medicine
In today's world of rapidly changing technology, ever more narrow specialization, and swiftly evolving advances in equipment and procedures all over the medical world, trying to practice medicine based on memory or reading an occasional journal article is unreliable.
Evidence-based medicine is a medical "movement" in which advocates work to popularize the method and usefulness of the practice in the public, patient communities, educational institutions, and continuing education of practicing professionals.
Practicing evidence-based medicine requires clinical expertise, but also expertise in retrieving, interpreting, and applying the results of scientific studies and in communicating the risks and benefits of different courses of action to patients.
