GARCIA-VALDECASAS CAMPELO, José; VISPE ASTOLA, Amaia; TOBIAS IMBERNON, Cristina  and  HERNANDEZ GONZALEZ, Miguel. On the (quaint) relationship between Evidence-Based Medicine and Psychiatric Practice in our environment. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2009, vol.29, n.2, pp.405-421. ISSN 2340-2733.

Currently, most extended and accepted psychiatric model is the so-called biological psychiatry, being Evidence-Based Medicine one of its most favourite tools. Without leaving aside criticism made to the model and those tool's flaws, we have wanted to set out if biological psychiatry itself and its supporters do really accept conclusions drafted by EBM, discussing some work's results, which we have considered interesting. We finish up with some personal opinions about the matter of, if it is not EBM, what or who is supplying power to the practice of biological psychiatry as it is carried out in our environment.

Keywords : Evidence-Based Medicine; Biological Psychiatry; Positivism; Empiricism.
