Evidence based medicine
on 15 March 2009
Nice straightforward review of how to systematically assess clinical papers against an evidence based standard.
Frankly most practicing clinicians will be acquainted with at least half the material covered but with revalidation upon us, a reasonably comprehensive work like this probably fills a useful niche.
Probably of greater immediate benefit to medical students, junior staff approaching interviews/PG exams and other healthcare disciplines
Sporting attempt to cover medical stats ultimately falls short but not before highlighting some salient points. Slightly tiresome fawning over the concept of evidence based medicine as a radically new paradigm in medicine that will cure all disease...
Generally a well written and useful summary/how to guide and pretty much worth the cover price
