Manifesto: Improving the development, dissemination and implementation of research evidence for better health


News : Headlines
There are huge shortcomings in the way that evidence based medicine operates today: bad quality research, evidence that is withheld, piecemeal dissemination, a failure to respect patients’ priorities, and more. There is also a long history of people, and organisations, trying to fix these problems. We want to pull together a clear set of achievable goals, and a strong overview of the strategies that work best, to help deliver change better, and faster. This is the EBM manifesto.

Meeting the Need for Rigorous Research in Health Care Claims


Resource Links : Bedside Clinical Support Tools
RESEARCH SERVICES Meeting the Need for Rigorous Research in Health Care Claims The public is constantly faced with claims about therapeutic and healing practices. Trying to sort out what works and what does not is often done in a haphazard and unreliable manner—or the information is not available at all. The evidence gap poses a challenge to health professionals,educators, funders and patients seeking to establish whether a health claim is supported by valid clinical evidence. There is a need for a streamlined, systematic and valid process for evaluating the safety and effectiveness of these claims. Samueli Institute created SEaRCH™ (Scientific Evaluation and Review of Claims in Health Care) to fill this gap by offering a scientifically rigorous, yet systematic and streamlined method for evaluating claims of therapies,practices or products for treating disease, improving health and/or improving human performance. SEaRCH™ has particular applicability to traditional complementary and alternative medicine and integrative health practice but is equally valid for any claim of any intervention—be it a product, practice or program.

From 'Big 4' to 'Big 5': a review and epidemiological study on the relationship between psychiatric disorders and World Health Organization preventable diseases.


Publications : Selected based on importance
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This study outlines the rationale and provides evidence in support of including psychiatric disorders in the World Health Organization's classification of preventable diseases. The methods used represent a novel approach to describe clinical pathways, highlighting the importance of considering the full range of comorbid disorders within an integrated population-based data repository. RECENT FINDINGS: Review of literature focused on comorbidity in relation to the four preventable diseases identified by the World Health Organization. This revealed that only 29 publications over the last 5 years focus on populations and tend only to consider one or two comorbid disorders simultaneously in regard to any main preventable disease class. SUMMARY: This article draws attention to the importance of physical and psychiatric comorbidity and illustrates the complexity related to describing clinical pathways in terms of understanding the etiological and prognostic clinical profile for patients. Developing a consistent and standardized approach to describe these features of disease has the potential to dramatically shift the format of both clinical practice and medical education when taking into account the complex relationships between and among diseases, such as psychiatric and physical disease, that, hitherto, have been largely unrelated in research.
