Testing treatments: Better research for better healthcare

Imogen Evans, Hazel Thornton, Iain Chalmers, Paul Glasziou

Research output: Book/ReportBookResearchpeer-review

Abstract

How do we know whether a particular treatment really works? How reliable is the evidence? And how do we ensure that research into medical treatments best meets the needs of patients? Building on the first edition, Testing Treatments has now been extensively revised and updated. The second edition includes an account of screening, explaining how early diagnosis is not always better, and a new chapter exploring how over-regulation of research can work against the best interests of patients. Another new chapter shows how robust evidence from research can shape the practice of healthcare in ways that allow treatment decisions to be reached jointly by patients and clinicians. Testing Treatments urges everyone to get involved in improving current research and future treatment, and outlines practical steps that patients and doctors can take together
