FEGHALI-RESTREPO, Antonio  and  ESTRADA-MESA, Diego Alejandro. Problems in clinical practice: the challenges of evidence-based medicine. Medicas UIS [online]. 2020, vol.33, n.1, pp.59-65.  Epub Apr 30, 2020. ISSN 0121-0319.

The development of this reflexion article emerges after the analysis of everyday medical praxis, where disagreements between medical students, clinical teachers, general practitioners and specialists in clinical areas are noted, which corresponds to the strong variability between therapeutic approaches from the clinical assistance personnel. Additionally, the conflicts deriving from the non-application of the Evidence-based Medicine due to the resistance of certain health professionals, along with the limitations in its applicability in our particular socioeconomic context, drives to the development of conflicts that make difficult the patient’s attention, create distances between the medical staff, limit learning in clinical areas, and produce a non-integral perspective, because in the majority of occasions, clinical decision is imposed over the values and preferences of users, a matter that is rarely explored inside the academic scope. MÉD. UIS.2020;33(1): 59-65.
