Hence the text is split into two sections, the first dealing with the way primary care workers can begin to understand and practise in an evidence–based way, the second addressing the broader issue of engendering a more evidence–based culture in their practice. Contributions from leading practitioners around the world ensure that the discussions are relevant internationally.

In this second edition each chapter has been thoroughly revised in the light of changes both in attitudes to and practice of evidence–based medicine. Emphasis is given to the need for continuing medical education using effective searching and critical appraisal, and to integrating research findings into practice.

As with the first edition, this revised text will be an invaluable guide for anyone in primary health care, providing authoritative and thoughtful information on this important development in clinical practice.
