SCR CONNECTions Web Conference: Comparative Effectiveness Research
Join us on Wednesday, December 15, 2010 from 10:30 am – 11:30 am (CT) for the NN/LM SCR’s monthly web conference, SCR CONNECTions. This month’s webinar is entitled Comparative Effectiveness Research and will be presented by Ione Austin from the National Information Center on Health Services Research (NICHSR) division of the National Library of Medicine.
The web conference will discuss ways of locating comparative effectiveness research using PubMed and other National Library of Medicine databases. Comparative effectiveness research, also known as Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR), is the conduct and synthesis of systematic research comparing different interventions and strategies to prevent, diagnose, treat and monitor health conditions. The purpose of this research is to inform patients, providers, and decision-makers, responding to their expressed needs, about which interventions are most effective for which patients under specific circumstances.
