In this penultimate installment in the educational series on evidence-based medicine, the Research Committee of the European Society of Pediatric Urology will focus on clinical application. In previous communications, optimizing medical decisions was focused on through the use of well-conducted research publications, and the topics of background, hierarchy of evidence, information acquisition, and critical appraisal tools were covered. The goal is to guide the clinician in using evidentiary tools for setting up a clinical question, finding appropriate information, searching appropriate databases, and evaluating the results with the patient in mind.
