This concise book presents evidence-based medicine to neophytes in simplified, friendly language. Basic concepts and application of research statistics are presented in simple sequences that are non-threatening even to the mathematically challenged. The authors emphasize two important aspects of appraisal: 1) how directly it provides an answer to the clinical problem at hand and 2) how well results can be generalized to various populations. Painless Evidence-Based Medicine:
  • Offers a simplified approach to the complex or technical subject of evidence-based medicine, in terms of presentation as well as content
  • Is truly designed for the world market place
  • Breaks the subject into succinct chapters, each chapter being a self sufficient introduction to the topic
  • Includes pre-tested ‘tackle boxes’ throughout to help readers understand the issues

Painless Evidence-Based Medicine is an invaluable resource for medical students, clinicians, clinical epidemiology practitioners, and everyone involved in health care.
