Evidence-Based Medicine

Clinical Evidence
This electronic book documents the best evidence available (or lack thereof) for treatments and preventative measures. There are clearly stated clinical questions, and interventions are sorted by effectiveness, with tradeoffs between options indicated where appropriate. Methodologies of summarized studies are labeled, and overall utility of therapeutic options is noted.

Cochrane Library
The Cochrane Library is a collection of evidence-based medicine databases, providing clinicians reliable and current information on the effects of interventions in health care. The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews are the gold standard of medical literature, providing comprehensive research analyses on a variety of medical treatments; DARE critiques other systematic reviews in a structured abstract format; CENTRAL provides a repository of clinical trial citations.

DynaMed
A point-of-care medical reference updated daily by a review of the medical literature. Organized in a structured note format, content is easy to navigate; both overall recommendations and specific study results are included; available for PDA download.

National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN)
NCCN develops resources that present valuable information to the numerous stakeholders in the health care delivery system. As the arbiter of high-quality cancer care, NCCN promotes the importance of continuous quality improvement and recognizes the significance of creating clinical practice guidelines appropriate for use by patients, clinicians, and other health care decision-makers.

National Guideline Clearinghouse (www.guidelines.gov)
The National Guideline Clearinghouse is a public comprehensive database of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines and related documents. It is an initiative of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
