Authors: Jean-Emmanuel Bibault

Abstract

Zhou et al. report in this journal a series of methodological reviews of clinical prediction model construction in 16 sections. They thoroughly explain the concept, current application and construction methods required to create such models with real-life data. Evidence-based medicine is based on randomized clinical trials designed to answer specific questions, like the efficacy or toxicity of a treatment.
