In recent years, there is a trend to develop the evidence-based clinical practice guideline which are designed to help the practitioners to assimilate and evaluate the ever-increasing amount of evidence on the best current practice. This article aims at improving the understanding towards the evidence-based clinical practice guideline and promoting a culture towards evidence-based clinical practice. Paragraph Headings: 1.
