Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) has allowed for significant improvement in the delivery and outcomes of health care throughout the world. However, is it safe to assume that because a study performed on a medical technique in one area of the world was successful means that this technique may be applied in another part of the world? Jordan Brandt, a Brandeis University student majoring in Health: Science, Society and Policy, Biology and Anthropology, will discuss some of the issues surrounding EBM. Drawing mostly on anthropology, this talk will examine the positive and negative components of implementing EBM in new settings, such as Vietnam, and some of the difficulties in ensuring they are executed effectively and with respect to the target population.
