Connecting Health-care Professionals and Consumers to Information They Can Use

The Clinician-Consumer Health Advisory Information Network (CHAIN) is an online educational, informational, and resource dissemination program operated as a collaborative effort of the Centers for Education and Research on Therapeutics (CERTs) Educational Consortium. The Educational Consortium is comprised of representatives from all of the CERTs research centers, the CERTs Scientific Forum, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

CHAIN Online provides timely and practical information to health-care professionals, patients, family members, medical faculty, and others about emerging issues concerning the safe and effective use of drugs, devices, and biological products.

CHAIN Online editorial policies are established by its editor and editorial board and are subject to review by the CERTs Steering Committee, Educational Consortium, and CERTs-at-large.
