Produktbeschreibung
Essential Evidence-Based Medicine teaches the principles of research study methodology and design so that the reader can become better at critically analysing scientific and clinical studies. It describes the basic elements needed to understand biostatistics and epidemiology as applied to health care studies, and how to become a more discriminating reader of the medical literature by adopting the skills of critical appraisal. This new edition is extensively edited and updated, and includes two entirely new chapters on critical appraisal of qualitative research and communicating risks and evidence to patients. The text is geared towards the new learner, and assumes little clinical experience, starting with the basic principles of critical appraisal. A CD-ROM accompanies the book to enable students to test their learning through a series of questions, with answers provided. This is an ideal introductory text for medical students, health sciences students and a wide range of other healthcare professionals.

Rezensionen
'This is the best book on evidence-based medicine and the foundations for the evidence that I have ever come across. It is very easy to read, and each chapter can be read as a standalone explanation of a particular concept. I highly recommend this for the personal libraries of students, residents and attending physicians.' Doody's Book Reviews
