Pack of Ohcm 9e and Oh of Key Clinical Evidence
Including the ninth edition of the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine and the Oxford Handbook of Key Clinical Evidence, this accessible pack is the ultimate guide to the practice and philosophy of medicine and the evidence behind the practices and interventions experienced every day. Now in its ninth edition, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine continues to be the definitive pocket-friendly guide to medicine. The culmination over 25 years of experience at the bedside and in the community, this handbook is packed with practical advice, wit, and wisdom. The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine presents clinical information in a clear way that makes it easy to revise, remember, and implement on the ward. It gives reliable advice on what to do, when to do it, and how to do it, with clinical photographs and diagrams that bring theory to life. Uniquely for a medical text, this book weaves history, literature, art, and philosophy into its survey of medicine, casting new light on the specialties and encouraging the reader to see beyond the practical aspects of medicine and adopt a patient-centred approach to care. Every chapter has been written with supervision from experts in each field to ensure accuracy, and updated to reflect relevant guidelines from the NHS, NICE, the Resuscitation Council and other key professional bodies. The Oxford Handbook of Key Clinical Evidence provides an alternative to the burgeoning repositories of trial data for students, trainees and researchers looking for the key evidence affecting medical practice. Recognising the growing importance of evidence-based medicine (EBM) to both study and practice of medicine and surgery, the editors have aimed to provide a quick-reference text which presents the key data, facts and evidence informing medical and surgical practice on a daily basis. Introductory chapters give the 'uninitiated' reader a firm footing in the history of EBM and its current importance within medical science. Readers are introduced to the current statistical methods and tools which are needed to analyse and critically assess trial data, providing a key for the terms and statistical methods encountered in the book and within medical research as a whole. Leading figures in the major specialties have selected and summarised the most important modern trials, creating a two-page format for each study which distils the key information. Highlighted boxes identify the study type and evidence-level attained, while analysis of the key message and impacts of the trial firmly place the evidence into a practical setting for the reader. Key study features and results are examined, while the difficulties or problems associated with the trials are outlined. Loved and trusted by generations of doctors, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine and the Oxford Handbook of Key Clinical Evidence continue to be indispensable companions for the practice of modern medicine.
