Da una medicina basata sulle evidenze a una medicina basata sulle conoscenze

Translated title of the contribution: The SIAARTI consensus document on the management of patients with end-stage chronic organ failure. From evidencebased medicine to knowledge-based medicine

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The management of patients with end-stage chronic organ failure is an increasingly important topic, since the extraordinary medical and technological advances have significantly reduced mortality and improved quality of life with prolonged survival of end-stage diseases. What should be the plan of care for these patients? Who should bear the responsibility for care? With what targets? These are crucial questions, to which modern medicine should provide convincing answers. The authors of the document explicitly resisted the temptation to draw up guidelines, showing that it is possible to customize medical intervention on the individual patient, keeping it tightly linked to the available knowledge. This is the most relevant aspect of the document: it goes beyond the classical concept of evidence-based medicine choosing to refer to the most dynamic knowledge-based medicine approach.
