Special Issue "An Evidence-Based Framework for Precision Medicine: An Overview and Future Perspectives"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 25 October 2023 | Viewed by 70
Precision medicine is a novel approach in the fields of medicine and public health that aims to improve the health of individuals and populations by tailoring personalized and targeted solutions based on individual variability in genes, metabolism, environment, and lifestyle. Unlike the conventional "one-size-fits-all" approach, precision medicine takes into account the uniqueness of each individual. However, there is still a lack of consensus on the most effective methodological approaches to fully leverage the potential of precision medicine.
One potential solution to this issue is the incorporation of evidence-based medicine (EBM) principles at the core of precision medicine. EBM is a well-established interdisciplinary approach that uses the best available evidence to inform clinical and public health decision-making, taking into account clinical expertise, patient values, and research evidence. The implementation of EBM in precision medicine by identifying relevant research studies, critically appraising their quality and integrating the evidence into clinical and public health could improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs.
Despite the potential benefits, there are challenges associated with the integration of EBM in precision medicine, such as access to and interpretation of research evidence and the need for ongoing education and training for clinicians, as well as the conduct of methodological sound studies with enough power to generate personalized solutions with clinical and public health impact. Therefore, this Special Issue aims to promote international understanding and development of EBM in precision medicine by presenting the latest research results and extensive review papers on the interchange between EBM and precision medicine.
