LETELIER S, Luz María  and  MOORE, Philippa. Evidence based medicine revisited . Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2003, vol.131, n.8, pp.939-946. ISSN 0034-9887.

Evidence based medicine (EBM) appeared early in the 1990s and since then it has been developed and expanded worldwide. A decade later we summarize the history of EBM, the initial debates and the evolution to the current concept of evidence based health care (EBHC) as a tool for clinical decision making. We also describe the process of EBHC, some insights to current dilemmas and the situation of EBM in Chile (Rev Méd Chile 2003; 131: 939-46)

Keywords : Clinical Medicine; Decission Support Systems; Clinical; Evidence based Medicine; Literature, modern.
