Evidence-Based Practice has its roots in Evidence Based Medicine (also referred to as Evidence –Based Health Care).
EBM was created in the 1980s and popularized in the early 1990s as a response to medical textbooks being unable to keep up with rapid changes in medicine and being frequently based on the interpretations of a small number of people in a respective field.
At the same time, the medical literature in journals was being produced in record numbers, but at the same time was poorly organized.
