Medicine Y1: Information Literacy: Finding 'Evidence' in Medicine

Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) Pyramid

Levels of Evidence

The levels of evidence pyramid is a way to visualise both the quality of evidence and the amount of evidence available.

For example, systematic reviews are at the top of the pyramid, meaning they are both the highest level of evidence and the least common. As you go down the pyramid, the amount of evidence will increase as the quality of the evidence decreases.
