Evidence-Based Practice Resource Guide

Background resources provide an overview of a disease or condition, including what is generally known and accepted. 

Core medical textbooks and review-type journal articles (otherwise known as "narrative reviews") are important background resources. Make sure to note the publication date for background resources -- knowledge of diseases, conditions and treatments changes frequently.
