Abstract

This chapter is an accompaniment to the previous chapter (Chapter 8) where the steps involved in answering a clinical question about prognosis were explained. In order to further help you learn howto deal with prognostic clinical questions when they arise and appraise the evidence, this chapter contains a number of worked examples of questions about prognosis from a range of health professions. The worked examples in this chapter follow the same format as the examples in Chapter 5. In addition, as with the worked examples that were written for Chapter 5, the authors of the worked examples in this chapter were asked not to choose a systematic review (for the reason that was explained in Chapter 5),but instead to find the next best available level of evidence to answer the prognostic question that was generated from the clinical scenario.
