Only book available that addresses the role of RCTs in informing clinical practice in Nephrology
Provides a reference for key clinical trials in the different areas of renal medicine
Will help the practicing physician close the gap between the clinical guidelines and day-to-day clinical decision-making for individual patients
This book offers a thorough and critical appraisal and evaluation of the key published clinical trials that have shaped current practice in nephrology, dialysis and transplantation. It will help the practicing physician close the gap between the inflexible and generalized nature of clinical guidelines and the day-to-day clinical decision-making for individual patients. Furthermore, it will provide clinicians with the tools required to investigate and extract the appropriate guidance to apply to individual and often complex cases encountered in daily practice. Lastly, it will improve the ability of junior colleagues to appraise available evidence in a systematic way when there is lack of local guidelines or when the guidelines are difficult to apply due to logistic constraints or barriers.
Informing Clinical Practice in Nephrology: The Role of RCTs is an essential reference text for renal specialists, nephrologists in training, transplant and renal surgeons as well as, researchers in renal medicine, intensivists specializing in acute kidney injury (AKI), immunologists, general practitioners and other clinicians who are interested in chronic kidney disease (CKD).
