Your Voice

By Peter Hamilton, BSc,MBBCh,FRCPC(C), Internal Medicine Program Director, University of Alberta
The editors of this first edition of 25 Landmark Trials in Cardiology are to be commended for their efforts and Skyscape interface makes it more helpful. They bring together practical, up-to-date reviews of the major clinical trials that have had such a positive impact on patient survival and length of life. David Sackett describes evidence-based medicine as the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients (BMJ 13 Jan 1996). All that separates us from quackery is the judicious use of scientific evidence, this book provides that evidence.
