What is Evidence?

In God we trust all others must bring data

  • Evidence is everything that is used to reveal and determine the truth.
  • Medical evidence comprises medical knowledge, from clinical trials and published research, to reveal the truth about medical conditions and the safest and most effective treatments.
  • Evidence is the highest level of truth regarding medical therapies.
  • Evidence will enable you to see how many patients got a specific therapy and how many of these patients had a good or bad outcome.
  • Using evidence from research studies is like entering a virtual waiting room of patients just like yourself, and asking, “What happened after undergoing your unique treatments?”
  • Consumers look for evidence when they buy HDTVs, computers, homes, mutual funds. Why not use the same type of evidence to choose a medical therapy?
