Text Notes

The Lange Current Medical Diagnosis & Treatment by McPhee, Papadakis, Rabow, and Tierney is a practicle size, up to date text for general use.

It also has a companion site that is useful for finding online resources.

Chapter 1 of the following text has nice coverage of useful EBM principles. 1997 work by Djulbegovic et al.

Decision Making in Oncology: Evidence-Based Management
Benjamin Djulbegovic (Editor), Daniel M. Sullivan (Editor)
543 pages ; Churchill Livingstone; 1st edition (January 15, 1997) ISBN: 0443089892
Given the copyright date and expense, you may choose not to purchase this book. I wish they would come out with a new edition. Djulbegovic is an editor of Cancer Treatment Reviews.
