A collection of handouts for Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) workshops run at the Centre for Evidence-based Medicine, University of Queensland which have been attractively presented in full colour as an ideal tool for learning EBM skills individually and in a group setting.
Written by world famous teachers of EBM, the book is split into three sections
Part 1: Introduction to evidence-based medicine, Part 2: The steps in evidence-based medicine, Part 3: Resources and further reading which take you through the principles of EBM. Helpful exercises based on journal articles are included as well as advice on how to access the relevant resources. Designed to provide clear help in finding useful answers from the literature for clinicians, the processes are laid out and then worked through with clinical examples.
