    The pressure to practice truly patient-focused, evidence-based medicine weighs on every anaesthetist and anaesthesiologist. Yet as the volume of evidence has grown, so has the expectation to always provide the highest quality care.

    There is a trap of unknown knowns: evidence known in the greater medical-knowledge body but that we are naively ignorant of.

    Bastardising William Gibson (1993), we risk that the evidence:

    “…is already here – it's just not very evenly distributed.”

    The greatest challenge for evidence-based anaesthesia continues to be the translation of research findings into actual practice change. The key to this is the intersection between quality, personal relevance, general significance, and credibility. But how can we achieve this?
