Summary

Evidence-based medicine (EBM) is a powerful tool for health care providers. Evidence-Based Practice for Health Professionals prepares students and clinicians with the important skills to locate, interpret, evaluate, and apply medical research to the care of individual patients; and communicate effectively about medical research to patients, colleagues, and other professionals.Evidence-Based Practice for Health Professionals covers the foundations of EBM and biostatistics, as well as the application, epidemiology, assessment, and application of EBM in clinical practice. This comprehensive and accessible text provides meaningful learning activities through communications such as writing a letter to an insurance company, explaining the evidence regarding treatment to a patient, developing a standard of care, selecting a diagnostic tool, and designing community-based educational materials. These applied learning experiences along with clinical case studies help students bridge the gap from the abstract concepts of research, statistics, and technical jargon to the concrete skills of medical decision-making and communications.With the increasing need for teaching EBM across the curriculum, Evidence-Based Practice for Health Professionals is the perfect addition for programs needing to satisfy accreditation standards related to evidence-based medicine and evidence-based nursing.
