It can be argued that EBM places too much emphasis on following a step-by-step algorithm . This could hamper the development of the clinical expertise of junior clinicians as they may become too machinelike in their approach, resulting in a lack of care towards the patient’s needs and values. This may lead to conflicts of interest between the patient and the care team, overall patient satisfaction and a decrease in working efficiency, which could prove fatal in those with acute illness.Furthermore EBM may not be the best option for those suffering from multimoribidities or comorbidities . This is due to the fact that using clinical evidence to control one disease may lead to the worsening of, or even directly cause another disease. This also means that it is more difficult to find articles regarding the specific morbidities pertaining to the patient’s case due to fewer available articles, and even when found, the relevant application of the article may affect the patient differently than what was predicted by the evidence. In this case EBM may prove more detrimental to the overall wellbeing of the patient than beneficial.Additionally it can be argued that there is too large a volume of evidence offered when practicing EBM . This may result in the consideration of too much evidence by clinicians when coming up with a plan of action, leading to unnecessary time consumption and therefore inefficiency. This may lead to further issues as the smallest of delays could prove fatal when treating acutely unwell patients.
