An ideal introduction to evidence-based medicine, How to Read a Paper explains what to look for in different types of papers and how best to evaluate the literature and then implement the findings in an evidence-based, patient-centered way.

This fifth edition has been fully updated with new examples and references to reflect recent developments and current practice. It also includes two new chapters on applying evidence-based medicine with patients and on the common criticisms of evidence-based medicine and responses.
How to Read a Paper is a standard resource for medical and nursing schools as well as a friendly guide for everyone wanting to teach or learn the basics of evidence-based medicine.
While the preface offers the resource to everyone, the principal audience is clinicians faced with the overwhelming volume of published medical literature who want to be able to differentiate which studies are worthwhile and should change an aspect of their practice. The analysis of where medical practice is and where it needs to be headed makes this resource imperative for clinicians and policymakers, medical leadership and academics alike.
Evidence-based Dermatology, Third Edition takes a unique approach to clinical dermatology by emphasizing use of only the highest quality available evidence when treating people with skin diseases.
Beginning with a toolbox introduction to the practice of evidence-based dermatology, it then covers the application of evidence for dermatological treatments across a wide range of ailments, including:
- Common inflammatory skin diseases
- Skin cancer, moles and actinic keratoses
- Infective skin disease, exanthems and infestations
- Disorders of pigmentation
In addition, many of the rarer skin disorders are also included so as to provide comprehensive coverage of the topic.
World-leading experts in dermatology follow a clinical approach for each disease, and as well as providing their expert guidance on the description and diagnosis of dermatological disorders, they also discuss common dilemmas that clinicians face when considering the best approach to patient management. ‘Key Points’ accompany each chapter to provide a quick review of the most important points.
Clinically oriented and practically focused, Evidence-based Dermatology ensures that your treatments are entirely patient-focused and fully supported by the very latest medical evidence.
