EBP and Appropriate Technology[edit | edit source]

Criticism of EBP[edit | edit source]

Evidence-based practice has been criticized includes the exclusion of under-represented groups from the studies on which the evidence is based. This may be especially true as research is often profit driven by producers of medical technology who seek more affluent populations to market their goods. As well, some feel that the method of passing information from the "expert" to the "base" fosters dependence and discourages individual thinking at the local level[2]
