Product description


Review from previous edition This well designed book is clear, accessible and, as one would expect from the title, evidence-based . . . I think this is a great book that challenges clinicians and others working in health care to develop and adapt to a rapidly changing and demanding world. Can we do it with support from patients? The answer is in the book! (Family Practice, Vol 19, No 3)

Before the last chapter, evidence-based patient choice could still be an option. After it, there's simply no argument. (EBPC on Bandolier)

This impressive edited book . . . is truly excellent . . . essential reading for all those interested in patient involvement and evidence-based health-care. (Health Expectations, 5)

About the Author

Adrian Edwards is Professor of General Practice at the Department of Primary Care and Public Health at Cardiff University. He is also a part-time general practitioner in Cwmbran, Gwent, South Wales seeing about 80 patients per week, and holds a visiting chair at the University of South Denmark in Odense. His two main research interests are in risk communication as part of shared decision-making, and in quality improvement in primary care. Among the former, research work has included the development and evaluation of training for doctors in risk communication approaches, and simple decision aids for use in consultations. More recently this has focused on development of interactive decision aids that might be used outside consultations. Other more 'fundamental' work is looking at the notion and application of Health Literacy initiatives that may underpin patient involvement in shared decision-making. Glyn Elwyn is a primary care clinician who has research interests in shared decision-making, decision support technologies, risk communication and the integration of health informatics into clinical practice. He has published 150 peer-reviewed articles. He was appointed as one of the inter-school Link Chairs at Cardiff University in May 2005, and leads the Clinical Epidemiology Interdisciplinary Research Group at the School of Medicine (2007) In collaboration with Professor Adrian Edwards, he convenes a research group on decision-making and the development of web-based interactive decision support materials (see,, He is involved in the supervision of 10 PhD students. He holds a visiting chair position at 'IQ' the Scientific Institute for Quality of Healthcare, Radboud University & Medical Centre, Nijmegen, The Netherlands. He co-leads the International Patient Decision Aids Standards Collaboration with Professor Annette O'Connor, Ottawa, Canada.
