Ever wonder where to find clear, evidence-based information about different treatment options for your patients?
Health care is changing rapidly. Demands on nurses’ time are increasing as new clinical information and technologies emerge at an exponential rate. Patients are increasingly getting more involved in their health care, exploring their treatment options, and looking for a role in determining treatment goals.
The Effective Health Care (EHC) Program at the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) wants to begin a conversation with you about these kinds of issues. Learn more about us by visiting our website
