Our field is suffused with evidence-based medicine. The assumption that improving quality of care indices is the path to improving health outcomes is virtually unchallenged. Residency training programs, as is pointed out at several junctures in this volume, are mandated by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education to address competency in "practice-based learning and improvement," under the aegis of which a variety of quality-based activities, including evidence-based medicine, are taught. But how does one practice and teach evidence-based medicine? Taylor's book seeks to provide relevant tools to three groups: practitioners, residents and other mental health trainees, and residency training directors seeking resources with which to develop evidence-based medicine curricula. The first third of the book consists of a series of historical, philosophical, and methodological chapters that presents the underpinnings of evidence-based medicine, while the remaining two-thirds of the book presents a series of "case studies" that illustrate how evidence-based medicine techniques can be applied to particular disorders or in particular systems. The book builds on a prior American Psychiatric Publishing volume by Gregory E. Gray (1), who is author or coauthor of 13 of the 17 chapters that comprise the book's first section.
