Understanding Evidence in Health Care delivers the essentials of clinical epidemiology to users of research literature, enabling them to practise evidence-based health care. It shows health care personnel how to have an effective understanding of published reports, interact with the hard-to-find and hard-to-understand terminology, and get real understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of scientific information in their field. Structured with the same flow as a research report and designed to develop the student's skill as they read, Understanding Evidence in Health Care is an accessible and essential text for doctors, nurses and health professionals in all fields.
