No other resource helps you to put key evidence-based medicine protocols into daily clinical practice better than Users' Guides to the Medical Literature.

An instant classic in its first edition, this detailed, yet highly readable reference demystifies the statistical, analytical, and clinical principles of evidence-based medicine, giving you a hands-on, practical resource that no other text can match.

Here, you'll learn how to distinguish solid medical evidence from poor medical evidence, devise the best search strategies for each clinical question, critically appraise the medical literature, and optimally tailor evidence-based medicine for each patient. The new second edition of this landmark resource is now completely revised and refreshed throughout, with expanded coverage of both basic and advanced issues in using evidence-based medicine in clinical practice.

FEATURES:
  • Completely revised and updated to reflect the enormous expansion in medical research and evidence-based resources since the first edition
  • Innovative organization guides you from the fundamentals of using the medical literature to the more advanced strategies and skills for use in every day patient care situations
  • Abundant and current real-world examples drawn from the medical literature are woven throughout, and include important related principles and pitfalls in using medical literature in patient care decisions
  • Practical focus on the key issues in evidence-based practice: What are the results? Are the results valid? How to I apply to results to the care of my patients?
  • More than 60 internationally recognized editors and contributors from the U.S., Canada, South America, Europe, and Asia -- the best of the best in the discipline
  • NEW coverage on how to: --Avoid being misled by biased presentations of research findings --Interpret the significance of clinical trials that are discontinued early --Influence clinician behavior to improve patient care --Apply key strategies for teaching evidence-based medicine
    Also look for JAMAevidence.com, a new interactive database for the best practice of evidence based medicine.

    This guide should be required reading for all people who work in the health field. Journalists who write/speak about health related topics would benefit as well. Highly recommend.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference May 23 2010
    By Janice G. Stevens - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Paperback
    This should be a required text for everyone in medicine as well as for anyone who reviews medical articles. As a scientist, I am often dismayed at the poor quality of many of the studies conducted and even more dismayed when a study of poor quality is picked up by the popular press and reported as gospel. Equally disconcerting is when the results of a study are misinterpreted or mis-reported in reviews. I would highly recommend this reference to anyone who regularly reads anything in the medical literature.

    This is a very useful book, not only for medical students but also for librarians who are interested in teaching EBM.

    I really love the format of this textbook. It's designed to help any major understand the research and statistical application of healthcare. Also great for reference material.

    Full of information, but not particularly digestible. Definitely best as a reference, not ideal as a textbook (which is what I'm using it for)

    4.0 out of 5 stars This is the all-purpose guide to evaluating medical literature Sept. 15 2013
    By John Owen - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    The content is a bit uneven, though overall is of very high quality. I just finished re-reading it on my Kindle. For those of you interested in the Kindle version be aware that much of the "boxed" content does not flow i.e. the pagination is poor. I blame the editors for this porr transcription from print to Kindle.
