About this Book

This unique new book uses a series of focussed questions, comprehensive literature evaluations and structured grades of recommendation to provide evidence for the treatment of hematological disorders, both malignant and benign. With contributions from leading international experts who have a real understanding of evidence-based medicine the book provides comprehensive reviews accompanied by clinical commentaries and recommendations on the best treatment regimes to adopt for individual patients.

The book is split into two sections: the first examines the methodology underlying evidence based practice, and the second concentrates on the clinical practice of hematology, providing current "best evidence" to guide practice in a series of well-defined clinical situations.

This clinical reference is an invaluable source of evidence-based information distilled into guidance for clinical practice which will be welcomed by practitioners, trainees and associated health professionals.
