Synopsis

Clinical Epidemiology & Evidence-Based Medicine Fundamental Principles of Clinical Reasoning & Research by David L. Katz

Clinical Epidemiology & Evidence-based Medicine is a resource for all health-care workers involved in applying evidence to the care of their patients. Using clinical examples and citing liberally from the peer-reviewed literature, the book shows how statistical principles can improve medical decisions. This work shows how probability, risk and alternatives are fundamental considerations in all clinical decisions, and demonstrates the intuitive basis for using clinical epidemiolgy as a science underlying medical decisions. This book is a useful reference tool that will assist the clinician to better access, interpret, and apply evidence to patient care as well as better understand and control the process of medical decision making.

Reviews

The presentation is consistently excellent. One, the writing is lucid and organized in a way that should be very natural for the clinical reader. Two, the text requires no background in mathematics and uses a minimum of symbols. And, three, the methodological concepts and clinical issues are well integrated through a number of carefully prepared and comprehensive examples. -- Greg Samsa
