The article references a study by P. Croft et al titled "The Pros and Conse of Evidence-Based Medicine" which looks at the role of evidence-based medicine (EBM). It notes that value of EBM is viewed differently by researchers, clinicians and policy makers and cites as example research by chiropractors that favors spinal manipulation as treatment while doctors are less favorable. It suggests staying current to the best available evidence as demanded by established standards of professionalism.
