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 This book takes clinical medicine a big step forward in the direction of patient-focused practice!
