Evidence definition: Knowledge on which to base belief.
Evidence-Based Medicine definition: An approach of practicing medicine with the goal to improve and evaluate patient care. It requires the judicious integration of best research evidence with the patient's values to make decisions about medical care. This method is to help physicians make proper diagnosis, devise best testing plan, choose best treatment and methods of disease prevention, as well as develop guidelines for large groups of patients with the same disease. (from JAMA 296 (9), 2006)
Level of Evidence definition: A formal ranking system of the strength of evidence linked to a reported result.
Evidence-Based Practice definition: A way of providing health care that is guided by a thoughtful integration of the best available scientific knowledge with clinical expertise. This approach allows the practitioner to critically assess research data, clinical guidelines, and other information resources in order to correctly identify the clinical problem, apply the most high-quality intervention, and re-evaluate the outcome for future improvement.
No Evidence of Disease definition: Diagnostic tests fail to detect presence of disease.
provides evidence for definition:

Indicates that the target Act provides evidence in support of the action represented by the source Act. The target is not a 'reason' for the source act, but rather gives supporting information on why the source act is an appropriate course of action. Possible targets might be clinical trial results, journal articles, similar successful therapies, etc.

Rationale: Provides a mechanism for conveying clinical justification for non-approved or otherwise non-traditional therapies.

Dryers, Forensic Evidence, Swab definition: Forensic evidence dryers designed to remove moisture from swabs containing forensic evidence (e.g., blood, body fluids) using forced air to ensure that the samples are dry. These dryers typically consist of a small tabletop or wall-mounted enclosure (typically of less than 55 cubic dm [2 cubic feet]) with a forced-air source (usually a fan) and a rack for swabs that may be independent from the enclosure. The devices also include air intake and exhaustion filters (e.g., HEPA) and a timer. Swab dryers are intended to dry wetevidence (e.g., of sexual assault) samples (typically swabs impregnated with body fluids) before further processing, reducing the risk of cross-contamination.
Freezers, Postmortem definition: Freezers designed to store tissue and, less frequently, organs excised from cadavers during autopsy procedures at temperatures typically from 0 to -20 degrees Celsius (32 to -4 degrees Fahrenheit). These freezers are usually made with a corrosion-resistant (typically stainless steel) interior, minimizing the risk of adulteration, contamination, and/or corrosion of contents; the internal shelving is appropriate for storage and easy location of the tissue and/or organ containers; they are typically manufactured in a stand-alone, upright configuration, but some smaller units are available in an undercounter configuration. Postmortem freezers include automatic defrost capability, maintaining the temperature in the entire freezing chamber within preestablished limits during the process; they also include sensors, controls, monitors, and alarms for dependable long-term storage following laboratory storage standards. Freezers frequently meet security standards to keep forensic evidence valid for extended periods. They are used in autopsy rooms and in medical examiners' offices.
Dryers, Forensic Evidence definition: Dryers designed to remove moisture from forensic evidence (e.g., cloth, shoes, underwear, masks, towels) using forced air to ensure that the samples are dry. These dryers typically consist of a large (typically from 55 to 440 cubic dm [2 to 16 cubic feet]), freestanding cabinet-like enclosure with a forced-air source and appropriate corrosion-proof holders and shelves for evidence; some dryers include electric heating elements. The devices also include air intake and exhaustion filters (e.g., HEPA), carbon filters, time and temperature controls, and alarms. Forensic evidence dryers are intended to dry wet evidence (e.g., of sexual assault) before further processing, reducing the risk of cross-contamination.
Evidence-Based Dentistry definition: An approach or process of practicing oral health care that requires the judicious integration of systematic assessments of clinical relevant scientific evidence, relating to the patient's oral and medical condition and history, with the dentist's clinical expertise and the patient's treatment needs and preferences. (from J Am Dent Assoc 134: 689, 2003)
Evidence-Based Nursing definition: A way of providing nursing care that is guided by the integration of the best available scientific knowledge with nursing expertise. This approach requires nurses to critically assess relevant scientific data or research evidence, and to implement high-quality interventions for their nursing practice.
Evidence-Based Emergency Medicine definition: A way of providing emergency medical care that is guided by a thoughtful integration of the best available scientific knowledge with clinical expertise in EMERGENCY MEDICINE. This approach allows the practitioner to critically assess research data, clinical guidelines, and other information resources in order to correctly identify the clinical problem, apply the most high-quality intervention, and re-evaluate the outcome for future improvement.
