📙 Clinical Thinking: Evidence, Communication and Decision-Making by — pdf free


Clinicians are taught masses of facts, but not how to use them in the messy reality of patient care. This book provides a missing link between evidence and the clinical coalface. Though there are plenty of guides to evidence-based medicine, few explain how to build the information into patient oriented decision-making. Clinical Thinking allows you to think both logically and laterally about daily clinical issues and look at problems from different angles.

  • Uses realistic scenarios, frameworks and models
  • Takes you through the whole decision-making process, from observation and narrative to evaluating the best evidence for the individual situation
  • Illustrations and flow charts help clarify this new approach
  • These methods have been tried and tested by the authors, internationally respected general practitioners and teachers in primary care – all leaders in the evidence-based medicine movement
