How to read a paper: The basics of evidence-based medicine
Caroline Lynch, Information Literacy Specialist, RCN Library
Reason you chose this book
This book is a useful introduction to the principles of evidence based health care and it has helped me to learn about this topic and to advise RCN members about how to evaluate information.
It explains how to evaluate different types of papers including systematic reviews, questionnaire research and qualitative research. The chapters about getting evidence into practice and applying evidence are particularly insightful. I think it is a useful book for nurses, student nurses, and nursing information professionals.
