Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Stephen J. Spann, MD (Baylor College of Medicine)
Description: This book focuses on the practice of evidence-based medicine (EBM) in family medicine. The first section focuses on the theory and concept of EBM. The second section focuses on application to specific clinical situations.
Purpose: It is intended to help present and future physicians, educators, and patients gain the knowledge and skills required to teach, practice, and use evidence-based medicine. Given the growing emphasis on cost-effectiveness, improved outcomes of care, and shared decision-making, this is a worthwhile goal. In general, the book meets the authors' objectives.
Audience: It is written for medical students, family medicine residents, and practicing family physicians. The authors are both professors of Family and Community Medicine at the University of Toronto, and are credible experts.
Features: The book is appropriately illustrated with figures and tables. References are current and pertinent. It is attractive in appearance. A CD-ROM is included, which contains the full text and illustrations in searchable PDF files.
Assessment: This book is a good, basic introduction to evidence-based medicine and its application in family medicine. It is an introductory text; readers interested in a more in-depth discussion will need to read additional texts or journal articles on clinical epidemiology, critical appraisal of the medical literature, and medical decision-making. This book will be a useful addition to the library of future and present family physicians.
