Modern evidence-based medicine (EBM) and its predecessor 'Medecin d'Observation' both emphasise that potential advances in healthcare must be researched and proven to do more good than harm using the principles of clinical epidemiology before they are incorporated into medical practice. EBM is considered an important advance in improving clinical care in gynaecology but EBM skills have traditionally not been covered in undergraduate or postgraduate education. Therefore there is a perceived need to compile texts on various aspects of gynaecological practice using EBM principles. This is what these two issues of the Best Practice series hope to achieve. The various chapters will provide readers with clinical advice generated from critically appraised information that has been identified as addressing relevant questions.
