The clinician with an evidence-based psychiatric practice (EBPP) applies the latest scientific research to an individual patient’s needs, values and preferences, evaluating multiple sources of expertise and evidence to produce an accurate treatment plan.
With evidence-based medicine (EBM), it is important that the psychiatrist offer a range of therapies, assess the quality of evidence relevant to the risks and benefits of each type of treatment, and review the patient’s progress against personal and published standards and measurements.
Essential Reading for Evidence-Based Psychiatric Practices

In addition to offering a wealth of books and journals on the latest advances in psychiatry, American Psychiatric Publishing (APPI), a division of the American Psychiatric Association, also publishes a range of highly effective books and guidelines on how to incorporate the latest scientific studies into clinical practice.
