Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Evidence-based Medicine Toolkit (2nd edition) serves a long time need for an evidence-based medicine (EBM) book that is both reliable yet does not intimidate the reader by its voluminous size…It is a highly portable book…that could easily fit into students’ coat pockets and is immensely readable and complete…The excellent layout of the book with its prominent display of key tables containing relevant information stands out and make these tools readily usuable. In summary, the text is handy and well organised and offers comprehensive information on EBM for both medical students and busy practitioners conversant with the basic principles of EBM."
