Introductory chapters give the 'uninitiated' reader a firm footing in the history of EBM and its current importance within medical science.

Leading figures in the major specialties have selected and summarised the most important modern trials, creating a two-page format for each study which distils the key information. Highlighted boxes identify the study type and evidence-level attained, while analysis of the key message and impacts of the trial firmly place the evidence into a practical setting for the reader. Key study features and results are examined, while the difficulties or problems associated with the trials are outlined.
This is essential reading for all medics with an interest in the fundemental evidence underpinning modern practice.
