Adrian Edwards, Glyn Elwyn
Oxford University Press, 2001 - Medical - 331 pages
''This well designed book is clear, accessible and, as one would expect from the title, evidence-based... I think this is a great book that challenges clinicians and others working in health care to develop and adapt to a rapidly changing and demanding world. Can we do it with support from patients? The answer is in the book!'' -Family Practice, Vol 19, No 3''Before the last chapter, evidence-based patient choice could still be an option. After it, there's simply no argument.'' -EBPC on Bandolier''This impressive edited book... is truly excellent . . . essential reading for all those interested in patient involvement and evidence-based health-care.'' -Health Expectations, 5This book's focus is on the decisions taken in consultations between health care patients and professionals. Clinician- patient partnerships in health care decisions are increasingly advocated. Evidence- based patient choice describes a model of health care in which the evidence-based approach can integrate with the promotion of consumer choice. The book examines the traditional approach and the changing experience and expectations of consumers. It describes with many clinical examples and patient narratives how to practice evidence-based patient choice, and explores the ethical, sociological and economic issues raised. It also addresses the future modifications to professional training and organisational change which are required if evidence-based patient choice is to become the norm and speculates about what is likely to be achieved in the next few years. The book provides a summary of current perspectives in this area, which will be of interest to consumers, their representative groups, and to professionals in practice and training alike. From the foreword by Richard Grol: 'An enormous challenge lies before us. In this new and challenging field Evidence-based patient choice is manna from heaven. It summarises the current state of knowledge about these new patient involvement approaches. It is by far the most comprehensive account of scientific and ethical thinking about patient choice at this moment. And, it manages to show us the way to a potential future: health care provision where patients and professionals operate as real partners with shared goals...'
