Health professionals are encouraged to practise evidence-based medicine. Ideally patients should be treated according to good quality evidence. This evidence is often lacking and can be difficult to find. Even using the latest technology, searching the published literature is time-consuming and may not answer a specific question. Clinical decisions, therefore, frequently have to be made without good supporting evidence.
