This book, Evidence-Based Medicine: From the Clinician and Educator Perspective, is authored by experts in evidence-based medicine (EBM) from various medical specialties and healthcare disciplines across the United States and Europe. This book is geared toward any healthcare professional or trainee who wishes to learn more about critical appraisal of the scientific literature, how to teach EBM and other important facets of EBM. The book covers fundamental concepts in defining clinical questions, literature search strategies and basic biostatistics. Additionally, the book describes the process for critically appraising scientific studies across many different study designs including: observational studies, interventional studies, diagnostic test accuracy studies, systematic reviews and meta-analyses. In addition to these traditional appraisal concepts, readers will learn the principles to consider during appraisal of survey-based research, qualitative research and clinical practice guidelines. Readers will also attain knowledge to prepare them to be skilled in teaching evidence-based medicine in clinical settings, designing EBM curricula for trainees, and implementing strategies for faculty development in EBM. Last, the book covers other important facets of EBM including high value care, the nurse’s role in evidence-based practice, and the integration of technology to aid in evidence-based practice. Overall, this book will provide clinicians with the knowledge needed to provide high quality evidence-informed care for patients and to teach the next generation of trainees how to incorporate EBM into patient care.
