Evidence-based medicine and, primarily, data from randomized controlled clinical trials are continually regarded as the only valid sources for all clinical knowledge. This Viewpoint discusses the merits of 'practice-based evidence' and how this important information is currently undervalued in the clinical community. 
Evidence-Based Practice & Practice-Based Evidence Applied to Adult, Medical Speech-Language Pathology
This paper discusses the current limitations of EBP in terms of a relative paucity of efficacy evidence and the limitation of evidence-based practice in the context of clinical practice.
Practice-based Evidence in Medicine: Where Information Retrieval Meets Data Mining
A new approach in medical practice is emerging thanks to the increasing availability of large-scale clinical data in electronic form, which requires moving away from traditional documentoriented retrieval as the end goal in itself, to viewing that retrieval as an intermediate step towards knowledge discovery and population-scale data mining.

Ethical deliberation: a foundation for evidence-based practice.
This article will affirm the centrality of ethical reasoning in EBP by describing what it means to be a professional as reflected in the authors' Code of Ethics, reviewing the principles of ethics that underlie clinical decision making, and demonstrating how an ethical framework can and should provide the context in which EBP is conducted.
Evidence-based practices in addiction treatment: review and recommendations for public policy.
The concept of EBP is examined, criteria used to evaluate the evidence basis of interventions are critically reviewed, and the manner in which such criteria have been applied in the addictions field is highlighted.
A CORE approach to progress monitoring and feedback: Enhancing evidence and improving practice.
The suite of CORE measures, including the centerpiece CORE-Outcome Measure (CORE-OM), its short forms, special purpose forms, translations, and psychometric properties, along with the pretreatment CORE Therapy Assessment Form and the CORE End of Therapy Form are described.

Clinicians must become skilled at identifying pseudoscience from science in order to determine if a treatment is legitimate or actually quackery.


Evidence based medicine: what it is and what it isn't
As evidence based medicine continues to evolve and adapt, now is a useful time to refine the discussion of what it is andWhat it is not.

A brief introduction to the National Data Bank for Rheumatic Diseases.
The National Data Bank for Rheumatic Diseases (NDB) is a research data bank with a broad agenda and approach to important clinical, regulatory, epidemiological, safety, effectiveness, outcome and
Why randomized controlled clinical trials do not depict accurately long-term outcomes in rheumatoid arthritis: some explanations and suggestions for future studies.
Limitations of clinical trials to depict long-term outcomes in RA include a relatively short observation period, patient selection resulting from exclusion criteria, inflexible dosage schedules and concomitant drug therapies, evidence that some markers of inflammatory activity are suboptimal surrogate indicators of long- term articular damage, and lack of capacity to detect rare side effects.
An additional basic science for clinical medicine: II. The limitations of randomized trials.
Although highly successful in investigating remedial therapy, randomized clinical trials have sometimes created rather than clarified controversy when the treatments were given for the complex
Eligibility of patients in routine care for major clinical trials of anti-tumor necrosis factor alpha agents in rheumatoid arthritis.
The conclusion that anti-TNFalpha therapy has greater efficacy than methotrexate may be valid only in a limited number of patients with the most severe RA.
The Arthritis, Rheumatism and Aging Medical Information System (ARAMIS): still young at 30 years.
As initiator of the rich history of chronic disease data banks with "rolling" consecutive open patient cohorts, ARAMIS has enabled the study of real-world PROs in rheumatology, with a wealth of resultant improved approaches to treatment, outcome, cost effectiveness, and quality of life.
Complexities in the quantitative assessment of patients with rheumatic diseases in clinical trials and clinical care.
Indices used in rheumatoid arthritis assess primarily disease activity, but separate indices have been developed to assess disease activity versus damage in patients with ankylosing spondylitis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and vasculitis.
Development of a multi-dimensional health assessment questionnaire (MDHAQ) for the infrastructure of standard clinical care.
The current version of a multi-dimensional HAQ (MDHAQ) includes scoring templates on the questionnaire to allow formal scoring in less than 15 seconds by a rheumatologist or an assistant, for possible entry onto a paper and/or computerized flow sheet.
