An essential part of the continuing education of general practitioners is the critical evaluation of published papers, yet many GPs feel unsure about their ability to do this effectively. Using original research papers as the basis for a series of critical essays, this book demonstrates clearly how to get the most from the published literature. The editors describe the ways in which the reader can approach and evaluate a variety of research methodologies and topics. Both qualitative and quantitative research methods are covered, involving in-depth interviews, descriptive surveys, analytical studies, randomized controlled trials, and cohort studies, and covering many aspects of patient care. This book will be useful for trainee GPs working towards the MRCGP examination and for established principals wishing to incorporate current research publications into continuing medical education and higher professional training.
