Evidence based Cardiology was first published in 1998 to universal acclaim. It was praised as a unique cardiology text providing graded evidence-based reviews of the major trials together with recommendations for optimum management. Edited and written by the world's leading cardiologists with an understanding of evidence-based medicine, it represented a breakthrough in clinical medical publishing, not only for cardiology.

With the move towards more patient focused health care and at the same time increased emphasis on health economics, evidence-based practice is a more important force in health care delivery than ever.
