Authors: Francesco Chiappelli (Divison of Oral Biology & Medicine, UCLA School of Dentistry, Los Angeles, CA) 
Book Description:
Ever since the terminology, concepts and tools of Evidence-Based (EB) were introduced, people have been trying to apply them to improve the care they provide to patients. Anyone who has heard the term “EB” knows that on the surface, it sounds like a logical good idea. But grasping the essence and technicalities of many of EB’s attributes is not that easy for the vast majority of clinical practitioners for whom a lot of the ideas of EB are directed towards. Dr. Chiappelli’s first hand experience teaching EB to dental students, residents and practitioners clearly pointed out to him the need for a central source of information, explanations and tutorials.

The feedback from the “stakeholders” of EB inspired this gifted teacher to put together the Manual of Evidence-Based Research for the Health Sciences as a complete resource. This comprehensive manual will be an essential text for students, scientists, clinicians, policy makers and industry product developers enabling them to have access to all of the parts and complexities associated with evaluating and applying information using the tools and concepts that have become associated with EB.
