Description

Review

Evidence based medicine is extremely important for making sure that our patients receive the best, most-appropriate and least harmful treatments. Being able to understand and evaluate the medical literature is something that is, therefore, essential. This is normally taught at medical undergraduate level but can be neglected once the pressures of learning clinical medicine and performing the daily tasks of a junior doctor become more important. –From the Preface
