Making Evidence More Accessible and Usable

A new study will help identify models for disseminating and accessing evidence-based clinical practice guidelines.

The 12-month project is intended to build on AHRQ's previous support for the National Guideline Clearinghouse and will explore innovative approaches to make evidence readily discoverable, accessible, and usable to support improved patient outcomes. Viable models will be defined by commitment to core elements such as free public access, advertising-free content, upholding of copyright permissions, and adherence to trustworthiness standards established by the Institute of Medicine. The study will also identify organizations with the potential to satisfy those standards.
