This book will help you to understand and appraise clinical research articles and guidelines and assess how they should influence your practice.

Assuming no prior knowledge, Clinical Evidence Made Easy starts by explaining the theory of evidence-based practice, including:

  • understanding the hierarchy of evidence
  • how to recognize bias
  • assessing research papers
  • making sense of qualitative research
  • making use of clinical guidelines
  • what to do with evidence from pharmaceutical companies
  • how to apply the evidence in real life.
  • The book concludes with a section covering clinical evidence at work (completely updated for this new edition) which:

  • provides you with simple appraisal tools that you can use to evaluate research papers and clinical guidance
  • uses extracts from original journal articles to show how you can put the appraisal tools and theory into practice.
  • This new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, and now features 'Test your understanding' questions for each chapter, along with answers at the end of the book.
