Are you getting EvidenceUpdates?


One of my colleagues sent out an interesting resource the other day: EvidenceUpdates, an innovative collaboration between McMaster University’s Health Information Research unit and the BMJ Group provides:

access to current best evidence from research, tailored to your own health care interests, to support evidence-based clinical decisions.

The methods are:

all citations (from over 120 premier clinical journals) are pre-rated for quality by research staff, then rated for clinical relevance and interest by at least 3 members of a worldwide panel of practicing physicians.

Now, one does have to register (I know, I know, yet another account). Yet from what my colleague said, it seems like this may be a pretty good reason to get more email (I know, I know, more email): at the very least, this can serve as a quick way to stay abreast of hot-button issues through email alerts and the sites’s Hit Parade: the most read articles across all disciplines in the last month:

Email alerts are similar, sending out the top 10 articles for the past month (based on which were viewed in detail):
