I love epidemiology! I wonder though how many readers of Occupational Medicine can say the same hand on heart.

Introduction Study design Resources Tools and guides. Critical Appraisal tools - Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine University of Oxford has developed tools and downloads for the critical appraisal of medical evidence, with examples. EBM Toolkit Collection of tools for identifying, assessing and applying relevant evidence for better health care decision-making from the University of Alberta. How to use the evidence - Australian National Health and Medical Research Council PDF guide to evaluating and using evidence gathered from a systematic literature review to inform development of evidence-based clinical guidelines. International Centre for Allied Health Evidence iCAHE, University of South Australia, provides a wide range of tools, services and resources to support health practitioners, service managers, policy makers, consumer representatives and researchers translate evidence into policy and practice. PRISMA may also be useful for critical appraisal of published systematic reviews, although it is not a quality assessment instrument to gauge the quality of a systematic review.
This book presents a logical system of critical appraisal, and facilitates studies to be evaluated and carried out effectively. This system emphasizes the central importance of cause and effect relationships. Its great strength is that it is applicable to a wide range of issues, and both to intervention trials and observational studies. This system unifies the often different approaches used in epidemiology, health services research, clinical trials, and evidence-based medicine, starting from a logical consideration of cause and effect. The book looks at the issues of study design, selection o The book looks at the issues of study design, selection of subjects, bias, confounding, and the place of statistical methods. Systematic reviews, meta-analysis, and the applications of this logic to evidence-based medicine, knowledge-based health care, and health practice and policy are discussed.
While the first source of bias might be prevented, and in some cases corrected to a degree, the second represents a pervasive problem afflicting the medical literature; a situation that can only be 'corrected' by a change in the mindset of authors, reviewers, and editors. This review focuses on the concepts of confounding, selection bias and information bias, utilising explanatory examples and simple rules to recognise and, when possible, to correct for them. Confounding is a mixing of effects resulting from an imbalance of some of the causes of disease across the compared groups. It can be prevented by randomization and restriction, and controlled by stratification, standardization or by using multivariable techniques. Selection bias stems from an absence of comparability among the groups being studied, while information bias arises from distorted information collection techniques. Publication bias of medical research results can invalidate evidence-based medicine, when a researcher attempting to collect all the published studies on a specific topic actually gathers only a proportion of them, usually the ones reporting 'positive' results.

Ну… - задумалась Сьюзан. - Это зависит от оперативности, с которой ARA пересылает почту. Если адресат находится в Штатах и пользуется такими провайдерами, как Америка онлайн или Компьюсерв, я отслежу его кредитную карточку и получу его учетную запись в течение часа. Если он использует адрес университета или корпорации, времени уйдет немного. - Она через силу улыбнулась.
