This is an excellent book, whether learning evidence-based medicine (EBM) for the first time, reviewing concepts, or learning how to incorporate EBM into your curriculum. Great for medicine or allied health disciplines (PA, PT, nursing, etc.) as the concepts are the same. Great up-to-date resources also available in book. This book will certainly help you improve and keep current in your patient care.

I find some of the language and examples to be confusing, especially to the beginning medical student. Great resource for clarification and preparing for class, but you will probably be better to use other class resources. The cards included are helpful though.

I bought this book for my husband whos a physician. He's very big on "evidence-based medicine"! He loves to implement alternative methods in his practice also BUT he's very big on only using evidence based. He found this book very helpful!

This class was way over my head. Try calculating PEER. There is some circular logic to some of the definitions of terms. I do not have a medical background and took class as part of my Informatics cert. Would not recommend.

Nice book, but too short. I think it is not for beginners of EBM. You have to have some background.

Very Strong and practical text. Covering crucial elements on how to critically review medical literature and rate level of science. This whole discipline is meeting in traditional medical education in the US

Excellent text; practical and with much evidence of experience in teaching EBM. Highly recommended for Allied Health students and teachers (along with the Herbert, R et al. 'Evidence-Based Physiotherapy' text) as well as Med students/ teachers.
