Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a new and timely introduction to an important development in medicine — the need for physicians to be able to critically analyze the scientific literature and make clinical decisions based on this critical analysis. This book, written and edited by a psychiatric educator in the field, is a welcome aid to teaching evidenced-based psychiatry to psychiatric residents.
Purpose: The purpose of the book, according to the author, is to help psychiatrists and other mental health professionals become familiar "with the methods and philosophy of evidence-based medicine." The author has succeeded in producing a readable and accessible introduction to this important topic.
Audience: The intended audience, according to the author, are psychiatry residency directors, psychiatry residents, and practicing psychiatrists as well as other mental health practitioners "who wish to learn about evidence-based medicine on their own and incorporate evidence-based medicine into their daily practice."
Features: Topics covered include the "5-step evidence-based medicine model," how to develop answerable questions, how to search for answers, a review of clinical trial methodology, understanding systematic reviews and meta-analysis, the role of clinical guidelines in evidence-based practice, evaluating diagnostic tests, understanding of surveys, review of various types of studies of risk or harm, studies of prognosis, formulating clinical questions, where to learn and how to practice evidence-based psychiatry, and a very useful chapter for me on teaching evidence-based medicine to psychiatry residents. The book's appendixes include a glossary of terms and statistical formulas and tables. The index is quite helpful.
Assessment: This is a valuable and useful introduction to evidence-based psychiatry. Every psychiatry residency training director as well as every psychiatric resident needs to be familiar with the material in this excellent book. I highly recommend it!
