Abstract

This chapter accompanies the previous chapter (Chapter 6) where the steps involved in answering a clinical question about diagnosis or assessment were explained. In order to further help you learn how to appraise the evidence for this type of question, this chapter contains a number of worked examples
of questions about diagnosis from a range of health professions. These worked examples follow the same format as those in Chapter 5. As with the worked examples that are in Chapter 5, the authors of the worked examples in this chapter were also asked not to choose a systematic review, but to instead find and use the next best available level of evidence to answer the clinical question that is in the worked example. This is because it is easier to learn how to appraise a systematic review of test accuracy studies if you have first learnt how to appraise a study about test accuracy. Chapter 12 will help you to learn how to appraise a systematic review
