Practitioners should be aware that not all subjects will have sufficient literature over the last five years. This is why it is crucial to use systematic reviews and practice guidelines in their decision-making process. When deciding on patient care approaches, it is important to combine both older and current research. Colleague feedback can also be helpful.
