About this Book
The pace of therapeutic advances in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases is rapid, and new clinically-relevant information appears with such frequency that it can be extremely challenging for clinicians to keep up.
Still, knowledge and interpretation of major clinical trials is crucial for the range of clinicians who manage cardiovascular patients, especially since important trial evidence often needs to be implemented soon after it is published.
Confidently apply gold standard treatment for 10 of the most critical areas of cardiology
Written by an international team of experts, Cardiovascular Clinical Trials: Putting the Evidence into Practice:
- Provides a succinct overview of recent major clinical trials - the gold standard for all medical treatment - across all the major cardiovascular subspecialties, to ensure you're up-to-date on the most critical findings
- Guides cardiology trainees and clinicians on how cardiovascular clinical trials are designed and conducted, including statistical methodology, so you can conduct and/or appraise future trials yourself
- Addresses methodology as well as clinical effectiveness
- Offers evidence-based assessments on the most effective treatments and authoritative clinical information on management of the conditions so you can confidently apply what you learn
Physicians, surgeons, specialist nurses - any clinician seeking an accessible resource for designing and conducting cardiovascular trials and then translating their results into practice will appreciate this book's clear guidance and succinct and practical approach.
