Essential Evidence Topics
Essential Evidence Topics are your point of entry into Essential Evidence Plus. This resource brings clinicians to the "Bottom Line" quickly and has been developed to comprehensively and concisely address over 800 conditions and diseases. You can jump quickly to background, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, special populations, guidelines, evidence, or resources to better target answers to clinical questions at the point-of-care. Moreover, each Essential Evidence Topic is tightly integrated with evidence-based content such as decision support tools, diagnostic calculators, Cochrane Abstracts, POEMs, evidence-based guidelines, and more. Get as much or as little information as you need and feel confident in the recommendations because all content contains a "strength of evidence" rating. This is one complete resource to support all of your decisions!
Example of Use: Clinicians can use Essential Evidence Topics to not only save time, but more importantly, improve health outcomes, efficiency, and treatment because it makes the best available evidence accessible in one place. Clinicians can pinpoint answers in one search and find evidence-based content from multiple resources simultaneously. For example, when you go to the chapter on deep vein thrombosis, you not only learn the latest treatment recommendations but also have quick links to several clinical decision rules to support your diagnosis, as well as a useful algorithm to guide management and a clinical rule that predicts the likelihood of complications.
