Based on Trisha Greenhalgh's course on teaching evidence based health care, this workbook can be used as a stand alone self learning book, either for groups or individuals. The different units covering areas such as decision analysis and diagnostic testing each contain a published paper with exercises for the user, and critical appraisal checklists. It will act as a complement to the best-selling How to Read a Paper.
The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
