Although the title of this book addresses evidence-based medicine, the content could aptly translate to nursing or any of the health sciences. Not only does the content give an overview of how to search for the evidence, it also discusses the purpose of research papers, the quality of the methods, and the basics about statistics. How to Read a Paper describes how to read specific types of papers, including guidelines, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses as well as economic analyses and qualitative research. An appendix includes a checklist of questions to consider for each type of paper being evaluated.
