Evidence-based veterinary medicine has evolved from evidence-based medicine and the principles of clinical epidemiology employed in human medicine for several decades.
This approach to medical practice is intended to improve decision-making by emphasising the use of evidence from well designed and conducted research. In its broadest form, evidence-based medicine is the application of the scientific method into healthcare decision-making, at both the population level with policies and clinical practice guidelines and at the individual patient level via the introduction of epidemiological methods into medical education.
