Document Type



Pathology (East Africa)


Evidence based medicine (EBM) helps clinicians to integrate latest research evidence in to their daily clinical practice. There is a need for all healthcare professions to adopt it in order to provide scienti c, safe, e cient and most cost-effective care. Postgraduate residents are at the frontline of healthcare delivery and all medical institutions should strive to produce practitioners of EBM. Studies have shown that physicians are still struggling to adapt to this paradigm shift in the practice of medicine but very few studies have been done in Sub Saharan Africa (SSA). This study explored the knowledge, attitudes, practices and barriers of evidence-based practice among resident physicians in a tertiary teaching hospital.
