Evidence-based Dermatology, Third Edition takes a unique approach to clinical dermatology by emphasising use of only the highest quality available evidence when treating people with skin diseases.
Beginning with a toolbox introduction to the practice of evidence-based dermatology, it then covers the application of evidence for dermatological treatments across a wide range of ailments, including:
• Common inflammatory skin diseases
• Skin cancer, moles and actinic keratoses
• Infective skin disease, exanthems and infestations
• Disorders of pigmentation
In addition, many of the rarer skin disorders are also included so as to provide comprehensive coverage of the topic.
World-leading experts in dermatology follow a clinical approach for each disease, and as well as providing their expert guidance on the description and diagnosis of dermatologic disorders, they also discuss common dilemmas that clinicians face when considering the best approach to patient management. ‘Key Points’ accompany each chapter to provide a quick review of the most important points.
Clinically oriented and practically focused, Evidence-based Dermatology ensures that your treatments are entirely patient-focused and fully supported by the very latest medical evidence.
The toolbox at the beginning of the book explaining how to critically appraise different studies, along with the comprehensive reviewing and appraisal of evidence in the clinical chapters makes this book distinctive in its field as do the treatment recommendations which are based on the discussion of the best available evidence using a question-driven approach and a common structure on dealing with efficacy, drawbacks and implications for clinical practice.
