Foundations of Evidence-Based Medicine

Synopsis

Presenting a cornucopia of topics seldom seen in a single resource, Foundations of Evidence-Based Medicine explores the principles of formal logic as applied to clinical problems and the uses of evidence in logical reasoning. Filled with definitions, formulae, outlines, flow charts, and checklists, the book contains accounts and references for almost anything you might want to know about the constantly growing roles of public health and clinical epidemiology in modern medicine. It describes the reasoning behind diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis in practical clinical medicine and discusses methods in quantitative analysis, especially meta-analysis and decision analysis. The innovative blend of informal logic and structured evidence-based reasoning makes this book stand out in a crowd.
