Joseph Paduda

Abstract

Chris Stout’s earlier chapter herein addresses issues of evidence based-practice and evidence-based medicine as applied to workers’ compensation situations , and additionally offers a model of a practice’s work-in progress in the active application of such approaches. This chapter will delve into related issues, in particular, the relatively new (to workers comp) area of comparative effectiveness, and the somewhat less sophisticated but much more common process of clinical guideline development.
