The article discusses the development and spread of evidence-based medicine as practiced by physicians. The magazine "Business Week" cited David M. Eddy for his advocacy for the practice in the 1980s. However, David L. Sackett is pointed out by some literature as the pioneer of the practice. The Centre for Evidence Based Medicine in Toronto, noted its main goal as to maximize help to patients by referring clinical decision-making on the kinds of evidence, while minimizing risks.
