Summary
  • This book addresses the common criticisms of evidence-based healthcare, dispelling many of its myths and misconceptions, while providing a pragmatic framework for testing the validity of healthcare literature. It also helps readers to understand the central principles of evidence-based medicine, critically evaluate published data, and implement the results in practical settings. The readers are guided through each fundamental step of inquiry, from searching the literature, to assessing methodological quality, and appraising statistics. -- Publisher description.
