Aeromedical decisions take many forms and are made by different groups and individuals. Because of the ubiquity of aviation in the world today, it is important that aeromedical decisions are of the highest quality that can be reasonably achieved. A paradigm of evidence-based aeromedical risk management is reported on here. It combines the concept of evidence-based medicine with structured risk management methodologies to produce a methodology capable of delivering the highest quality of aeromedical decisions. While neither of these concepts is new, practitioners do need to ensure that they have the skills and knowledge to maximize the quality of their aeromedical decisions.
