MALAGA, Germán  y  NEIRA-SANCHEZ, Elsa R.. Evidence-Based Medicine, its progress at 25 years after its inception, promoting a scientific, thorough, caring, loving, and humanized clinical practice. Acta méd. Peru [online]. 2018, vol.35, n.2, pp.121-126. ISSN 1728-5917.

Evidence-based medicine (EBM), has been into practice for the last 25 years, being an approach for clinical practice integrating science with the use of the best available evidence alongside clinical ability and also respecting patient’s values and preferences for decision making. During its progress, EBM incorporated shared decision making, aiming to involve and empower persons with respect to their healthcare, but noting that isolated informed decision making is not enough; instead, a deep collaboration between patients and physicians is needed, so that decision making may really be a shared act. This has led to understanding what is the meaning of being a patient and how healthcare depends upon an equilibrium between the workload and the ability to manage it, and that only through an empathetic conversation we may successfully manage patients care, establishing a 'minimally intrusive medicine', a process that implies plenty of humanity and turns EBM into 'a human expression of a careful and caring scientific medical practice'
