AHRQ Effective Health Care Program Forum
AHRQ Effective Health Care Program Forum is available for nurses to explore and discuss comparative effectiveness research (CER), a type of patient-centered outcomes research that provides evidence-based information to help nurses and patients work together to treat an illness or condition. By comparing drugs, medical devices, tests, surgeries, or ways to deliver health care, patients and their families can make more informed choices.
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) is the lead Federal agency charged with improving the quality, safety, efficiency, and effectiveness of health care for all Americans.
The Effective Health Care Program of AHRQ works with researchers, research centers, and academic organizations to produce CER and translate findings into useful formats for a variety of audiences, including patients and clinicians.
Comments from anyone outside of AHRQ do not imply an endorsement by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, AHRQ, or any other Federal agencies such as the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Food and Drug Administration, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, and the Health Resources and Services Administration.
