About the book
With ongoing advances and developments in the field of medicine, it is becoming important to collate, concise and bring together new information that is being generated. Thus, we must know the usefulness and applicability of this new evidence. It needs to be accessible to professionals involved in healthcare as well as patients and their families. There are various databases and sources of new evidence but we need to understand the most important ones and use them accordingly. Failure to do so will render all the new developments and evidence unprofitable, and will therefore not benefit all those who it is meant for. This book covers the need of evidence based medicine in today's world. It also gives information about aspects of evidence based medicine in regards to challenges in implementing its recommendations, and areas where it can lead to an improvement. Appropriate examples from the clinical domain/patient experiences will be incorporated when necessary.
