POEMs Research Summaries
POEMs (“Patient-Oriented Evidence that Matters”) Research Summaries are synopses of new evidence carefully filtered for relevance to patient care and evaluated for validity. POEMs Research Summaries emerge from continuous review, grading, and critical appraisal of all 3000+ studies published monthly in more than 100 journals. Using Essential Evidence Plus, you will have complete visibility into the archived collection of over 4,000 regularly updated POEMs Research Summaries. Tap into summaries of relevant and essential evidence-based research that are presented in an easy-to-understand format. Quickly identify and understand the information you need and apply the research to your clinical practice!

Example of Use: Within three weeks of publication, important study results are incorporated into a POEMs Research Summary. Instead of reading each of the 100+ journals that we summarize, simply rely on the POEM evaluation system to find relevant, valid information presented in an easy-to-understand format.
