Appraisal of an article on prognosis

  • Marc Lester (a1), James P. Warner (a1) and Robert Blizard (a1)
Abstract

Prompted by a clinical question, an article on prognosis in anorexia nervosa was appraised using evidence-based guidelines. Although problems with the validity and generalisability of the study were identified, this article yielded useful information. We conclude that it is not possible to address all clinical questions using the evidence-based framework.
