What are we looking for?

EBM Pyramid

Consider the pyramid to be a visual representation of the entirety of clinical biomedical information.  Resources at the bottom of the pyramid are plentiful but are not necessarily Evidence-Based in their approach or findings.  Moving up the pyramid, resources are developed using more robust methodology which lessens bias and leads to stronger Evidence-Based findings but are fewer in number.
