The 2nd edition of Testing Treatments was published in 2011. It urges everyone to get involved in improving current research and future treatment, and outlines practical steps that patients and health professionals can take together to do this.

How do we know whether a particular treatment really works? How reliable is the evidence? And how do we ensure that research into medical treatments best meets the needs of patients? These are just a few of the questions addressed in a lively and informative way in the free book written by Imogen Evans, Hazel Thornton, Sir Iain Chalmers and Paul Glasziou.

The full text of the 2nd edition is available for free download, and the paperback and ebook editions can be purchased from the publisher or from online booksellers. The text is already available in some other languages, and translations into additional languages are being prepared.
