Evidence-Based Medicine Pyramid



Link to EBM images.

I am thrilled that my page has gotten a few people turned on to evidence based medicine. I refuse, though, to try to teach statistical analysis, though, as I don’t think I’m very good at it. I am sharing this pyramid which is easy to understand and helps one see why I feel that some studies are better than others and why some studies get published in not-so-good journals and others get published in NEJM and The Lancet. As noted at the bottom of the image, my opinion from practical observation is 💩which is why you should always read data for yourself and not trust what I write and say. I hope I don’t upset the copyright gods bc stealing someone’s image.
