Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for healthcare professionals, 25 Jun. 2014
This review is from: How to Read a Paper: The Basics of Evidence-BasedMedicine (HOW - How To) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Evidence base practice is at the forefront of modern day clinical work and for good reason. Clinicians of all disciplines are expected to demonstrate that the decisions they make are safe, and effective. It also helps to build a business case for funding if you can show that what you want to do actually works.

Let's turn the clock back a few years, to the time when you're at Uni on your pre-clinical training programme, whatever type that might be; speech and language therapy, nursing, medicine, healthcare science. You get your assignment title, and panic, because you've been asked to write a care or intervention plan for a client and support your decisions using evidence from the literature. How do you know whether the paper you're reading is well-written? What about the research methods, are they robust? Can you actually base the decisions you make on the researcher's results? This is where Professor Greenhalgh's book comes into it's own. Taking you through the basics of how to interrogate and interpret a clinical paper, this book has been and still is essential reading for healthcare professionals and students. It's a pleasure to see it updated and reissued and I continue to recommend it to students.
