Effective Clinical Practice synthesizes the ways in which advances in modern clinical practice can be achieved. Just two of these are the introduction of research evidence into routine clinical practice, and critical evaluation of the effectiveness, appropriateness and efficiency of healthcare delivery. The authors also address current concerns of healthcare purchasers, managers, and clinicians about: developing quality, purchasing quality, auditing and evaluating patient care, issues regarding clinical interventions, and legal issues concerning the use of clinical standards and practice guidelines. The last chapter puts into perspective patients′ experiences of clinical audit and evidence–based care. By providing a comprehensive review and systematic investigation of all these issues, this book stimulates debate and adds considerably to our knowledge. This book will undoubtedly be of great interest to doctors, clinicians, healthcare purchasers and managers, health scientists, academics, and undergraduate and postgraduate students of health sciences.

"This book is a worthwhile contribution to the literature on "clinical audits" and clinical guidelines.  The later chapters present excellent summaries of important issues, such as the legal and economic implications of using guidelines, and methods for improving the efficiency and effectiveness of clinical practices.  The book is a good introduction to these topics for students, and for those charged with managing clinical services, it provides useful insights."
