Contents Generation and organisation of evidence in health care -- Locating the best evidence -- Are the results valid? -- Quantitative aspects of diagnosis and screening -- How large was the effect of treatment? -- How precise is the estimate of the effect? -- Are the valid results important? -- Are the results generalisable to our patients? From evidence to implementation
Summary UNDERSTANDING EVIDENCE IN HEALTH CARE delivers the essentials of clinical epidemiology to users of research literature, enabling them to practice 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 and grow the student's skill as they read, this title is an accessible and essential text for doctors, nurses and health professionals in all fields
