Summary Guides

These short, plain-language guides — tailored to clinicians, consumers, or policymakers — summarize research reviews' findings on the benefits and harms of different treatment options. Consumer guides provide useful background on health conditions. Clinician and policymaker guides rate the strength of evidence behind a report's conclusions. The guides on medications also contain basic wholesale price information. Some guides are also available in Spanish. Reports are listed starting with the most recent.

Research Reviews

They also show where more research is needed.There are two types of research reviews: (1) Comparative effectiveness and effectiveness reviews outline the effectiveness — or benefits and harms — of treatment options and (2)Technical briefs explain what is known — and what is not known — about new or emerging health care tests or treatments.
