Complete and flawless evidence is not enough to make valid and valuable treatment choices.
In order to ensure better patient outcomes, smart physicians will learn how rational, practical uses of evidence allow organized decision-making in practice and research.
If the interpretation of the evidence is not logically sound or if it is used uncritically, a patient could be harmed. Harm might also occur by a logically flawless use of poor or poorly evaluated evidence. Physicians face making tough medical decisions based on diverse evidence every day. Evidence-Based Practice: Logic and Critical Thinking in Medicine is the resource you need to enable you to interpret and use this evidence to make valuable treatment choices in your daily practice.
Evidence-Based Practice: Logic and Critical Thinking in Medicine provides easy access to fundamental principles, quickly assimilated techniques, and proven, rigorous application that demonstrates how logic and critical thinking are applied to the medical thinking process. This marriage allows health professionals to understand the critical use of evidence logically and in a structured, methodological way to make medical decisions. Such uses of evidence are the essence of Evidence-Based Practice as reflected in the spirit of this book. Seven well-organized chapters provide the following information:
Numbered steps and flowcharts. Help the reader to think critically in an organized way.
Practical examples in wide array of specialties. Enhance the relevance of logic and critical thinking across the whole domain of medicine.
