A main aim of the Evidence-based Medicine is to make the best decision by related evidence in supplying healthcare services. To apply evidence-practice gap (EPG) is very helpful to scan for what evidence is necessary. EPG gave 4 parts depending on the existence of evidence and practice. Comparative effectiveness research could be suggested in the part on conducting a practice with evidence. Translational research would be applied in the part on no practice without evidence. The adaptation of previously clinical practice guideline (CPG) should be conducted in the part on treating patients without evidence. Finally, de novo development of CPG would be undertaken in the situation of not applying the known evidence for clinical practice. These trials would bring us to a new level in improving the level of quality in the nationwide healthcare system as well as to progress achievements in the Korean medical academy.
