5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This second edition is even better than the original. Information is easier to find and the additional resources that will be available at www.JAMAevidence.com will provide readers with a one-stop source for evidence-based medicine."--Doody's Review Service

Evidence-based medicine involves the careful interpretation of medical studies and its clinical application. And no resource helps you do it better-and faster-than Users' Guides to the Medical Literature: Essentials of Evidence-Based Clinical Practice.

This streamlined reference distills the most clinically-relevant coverage from the parent Users' Guide Manual into one highly-focused, portable resource. Praised for its clear explanations of detailed statistical and mathematical principles, The Essentials concisely covers all the basic concepts of evidence-based medicine--everything you need to deliver optimal patient care.

It's a perfect at-a-glance source for busy clinicians and students, helping you distinguish between solid medical evidence and poor medical evidence, tailor evidence-based medicine for each patient, and much more. Now in its second edition, this carry-along quick reference is more clinically relevant--and more essential--than ever!

FEATURES

  • Abundant real-world examples drawn from the medical literature are woven throughout, and include important related principles and pitfalls in using clinical research in patient care decisions
  • Edited by over 60 internationally recognized editors and contributors from around the globe
  • Also look for JAMAevidence.com, a new interactive database for the best practice of evidence based medicine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Compact and info full. Different style. July 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I have basically memorized much of this book for my EBP class in by doctorate program for physical therapy. However, I found it a bit of a hard read. Very compact information, and a different style. Perhaps style differences are due to the writing styles between the U.S. and Great Britain's (the author's).

4.0 out of 5 stars Best there is but not perfect for me June 26, 2014
Format:Paperback
As a speech therapy doctoral student, I find this book thorough, but the examples are not related to therapy, so I don't find them helpful. According to my professor, the books on EBP for therapy are not as good as this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars wish my school had required this book. August 8, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
between this and Weingart's book, I'm pretty happy. Think this should be mandatory reading. Plus it is small enough to throw in my backpack.
