In many respects, obstetrics, perinatology, and neonatology have been at the forefront in the dissemination and uptake of evidence-based medicine. The work of the Cochrane Collaboration began largely with the need to systematize the evidence on these subjects. Among other organizations, the National Perinatal Information Service and the Vermont Oxford Network represent exemplary efforts to promote the uptake of evidence. With this background and support, the reader should be equipped to use the tools and examples provided in this article to promote evidence-based practice in his or her own practice setting.
