Evidence-based medicine (EBM) is the conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of the current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients. We ask authors to explicitly rate the level of evidence for key recommendations on diagnosis and treatment whenever possible so readers will have a better understanding of the strength of the recommendations. Readers, in turn, should understand the ratings and the significant impact they can have on their practice. This information is provided for readers who want to learn more about EBM, and for authors preparing manuscripts for publication.
