Introductory chapters give the "uninitiated" reader a firm footing in the history of EVM and its current importance within medical science. Readers are introduced to the current statistical methods and tools that are needed to analyze and critically assess trial data, providing a key for the terms and statistical methods encountered in the book and within medical research as a whole.
Leading figures in the specialties have selected and summarized the most important modern trials, creating a two-page format for each study which distills the key information. Highlighted boxes identify the study type and evidence-level attained, while analysis of the key message and impacts of the trial firmly place the evidence into a practical setting for the reader. Key study features and results are examined, while the difficulties or problems associated with the trials are outlined.
This is essential reading for all medics with an interest in the fundamental evidence underpinning modern practice.
