How to read a paper and appraise the evidence


Evidence-based veterinary medicine (EVM) is a concept that is increasingly discussed within the veterinary profession. One important form of evidence is published papers in the peer-reviewed scientific literature. Reading scientific papers is one of the basic skills required to be able to follow the principles of EVM. However, it can be time-consuming and difficult for vets to find time to read this relevant literature. Improving basic paper-reading skills can reduce the time it takes to assess a paper, decide if it is relevant and valid, and apply it to a clinical setting.
