Evidence Based Medicine (EBM), using the best evidence in the literature for the best care for an individual patient, sounds very simple. Yet, most medical students and physicians do not have the mathematical background or training to critically evaluate published research. This 'users guide' to EBM helps you become a more discriminating reader of the medical literature, and better equipped to apply EBM in practice. This is an ideal introductory text for medical students and all health-care professionals.
