WorkplaceTesting Explains Evidence-Based Information

Evidence-based information is closely related to evidence-based practice and evidence-based medicine. The latter two are the application of health measures or programs relying on the evidence-based information gathered beforehand. Evidence-based practice is often composed of three major principles:

  • The best available information or research evidence on what treatment works and why
  • Clinical judgement and experience to identify each individual's unique health and safety requirements as well as the potential risk and benefits of intervention
  • Worker values and preferences
