Evidence-Based Medicine Guidelines fills the demand for a handbook discussing the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of diseases and conditions encountered by health care professionals.

  • Clear and concise explanations of all available evidence results in the guideline for treatment

Easy-to-read and fast support at the point of care - EBM Guidelines:

  1. Summarises the best available evidence - Cochrane reviews - DARE abstracts - Clinical Evidence topics - original articles in medical journals - abstracts in the Health Technology Assessment Database - NHS Economic Evaluation
  2. Evaluates and grades the strength of all individual evidence from A (Strong research-based evidence) to D (No scientific evidence)
