Description

Aimed at practicing obstetricians; gynecologists; and trainees in the specialty; Evidence-based Obstetrics and Gynecology (PDF) concentrates on the clinical practice areas of diagnosis; investigation and management. The first section of the book discusses evidence-based medicine methodology in the context of the two specialties. The second and third sections cover all the major conditions in obstetrics and gynecology; with each chapter reviewing the best available evidence for management of the particular condition. The chapters are structured in line with EBM methodology; meaning the cases generate the relevant clinical questions.
