Understanding Clinical Papers by David Bowers

Book Description

Now in its Second Edition, this book helps to unravel the process of evidence-based practice, which requires clinicians to evaluate and collate information from the journals they read. Understanding Clinical Papers, Second Edition uses actual papers to illustrate how to understand and evaluate published research, but goes beyond this to provide an explanation of a range of important research-related topics. Understanding Clinical Papers, Second Edition: * Covers everything necessary to understand a clinical research paper * Examples are illustrated and based uniquely on tables, abstracts and exerts from published clinical research papers * Amazingly clear, lively, accessible style * The new edition has been markedly improved and extended, containing, for example, new material on measurement scales, systematic reviews, writing a paper, statistics software and critical appraisal "What strikes the reader...straight away is clarity...promises to become a recommended text for undergraduate and postgraduate courses." JOURNAL OF TROPICAL PEDIATRICS "The writing style is amazingly clear and does not require formal course work in biostatistics or epidemiology...We strongly recommend it for beginners and for easy entry into a complex domain and to experts who we think will enjoy it and who will find it useful as they teach, advise and help others. " QUALITY IN HEALTH CARE "What makes this book unique is that each point presented is illustrated with excerpts from actual papers, often three or four per chapter...this is a very effective teaching device." JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION "This book should be an essential addition to the personal libraries of all health care workers who need to use articles in journals. In these days of evidence-based medicine, this should apply to all physicians, nurses and other health professionals." ONCOLOGY Understanding Clinical Papers, Second Edition is an invaluable resource for everyone involved directly or indirectly in health care - an ultimate guide for those who read clinical literature.
