Ideal for clinical students including medical, nursing, pharmacy, dental, physician assistant and more!

- Evidence-based information plays a critical role in clinical practice decisions. Secondary sources are often unreliable; it’s up to the student, then, to critically assess peer-reviewed research literature. Using a highly structured yet accessible method, this best-selling text teaches students to critically analyze research from primary sources.

- Step-by-step approach - learn to recognize a meaningful study, clues to potential study flaws, and ways to apply solid evidence in clinical practice

- Simple 6-point framework - learn to evaluate studies in terms of the author’s trademark mnemonic device, M.A.A.R.I.E. (Methods, Assignment, Assessment, Results, Interpretation and Extrapolation)

- Unique Learning Aids - question checklists, real-world scenarious, flaw-catching exercises and more help to make complex concepts easy to grasp

New!

- "Learn More" boxes illustrate key concepts
- Clinically oriented "Mini-Studies" demonstrate what can go wrong and how to get it right
