Evidence based thinking in clinical medicine has impacted greatly on the physician's approach to clinical care. In addition to promoting the understanding of the evidence based philosophy, the authors have focused on some of the fundamentals in dermatology that need to be approached differently. Issues such as the interpretation of clinical research, disease-oriented evidence versus patient-care evidence, and the use of placebo are examined. This book introduces and encourages the concept of evidence-based patient care in dermatology. This is a growing area in dermatology, and this work presents the ideology and methodology of critical thinking and also the available evidence across the field. Evidence Based Dermatology is aimed at both primary care physicians and dermatologists, encouraging disease management decisions to be based on the highest level of evidence.
Evidence Based Dermatology introduces and encourages the concept of evidence-based patient care in dermatology. Authored by over 130 expert contributors from 15 countries, and incorporating a text with all new four color design and images,  this new edition explores disease mechanisms and treatments in greater depth and detail in order to provide more insight for the reader.
