Thus, one could summarize the CPBE process includes several steps, one of which is critical appraisal of the evidence found in literature search. It is essential to understand that not all the information from scientific journals is reliable or valid, and therefore suitable to be instituted in clinical practice. For this reason, the information must be critically analyzed; i.e. carefully and systematically examining research to judge its validity and reliability, or stated another way, its value and relevance in a particular context. The aim of this article is to hierarchy the existing information on strategies to realize critical analysis of the scientific literature and to describe the tools most commonly used for this purpose.
