The ability to critique the literature and source out relevant information to answer a clinical question is a skill that is being introduced into the under-graduate curricula of most health professions. Posing a clinical question on therapy, sourcing the literature, reviewing critically what you find and then hopefully answering the question is central to the evidence-based method. The very foundation of clinical teaching and clinical practice will in the future rely on the "evidence-based method". A checklist is the easiest and quickest way to review journal articles.
