"At its core, evidence-based medicine challenges physicians to be more critical in their appraisal of the evidence and to weigh all of the evidence relating to a particular clinical scenario appropriately. More to the point, evidence-based medicine delivers the tools to do so.

"For these reasons, evidence-based medicine can and should play an integral role in the effective practice of medicine."

With these words, Dr. Gordon Guyatt and Dr. P.J. Devereaux of McMaster University sum up the critical role evidence-based medicine plays in improving patient care.

But how often in your busy life as an emergency physician do you have time to critically appraise all the available literature on a given topic and then apply it to your patient?

That's where Emergency Medicine Practice comes in.

For over 10 years, Emergency Medicine Practice has been providing emergency physicians like you with the tools they need to provide the very best in patient care.

Each month, Emergency Medicine Practice covers a topic critical to the practice of emergency medicine -- from Neurologic Emergencies, to Cardiovascular Emergencies, to Trauma, to everything in between.
 

But Emergency Medicine Practice takes a different approach from other CME resources.

First, we start with the Critical Appraisal of the Literature. Our authors spend over 6 months researching the Cochrane Database, DARE, the National Guidelines Clearinghouse, and other evidence-based sources to identify the highest quality literature. Our authors are critical of the literature -- they attack unsupported medical myths and champion practices gleaned from large, unbiased studies. The findings of a large, prospective, randomized, and blinded trial carry considerably more weight than a case report, and far more than platitudes and clichés parroted by textbooks. We point out the controversies and are explicit when something is thought to be true as opposed to known to be true. Conventional wisdom is not what we cover. Each article is a rigorous and uncompromising answer to the question “What do we really know?” This approach has resonated with our readers, who've sent us feedback such as:


"Practical and honest about the current state of the literature. I appreciate the high-quality medical information." -- Clifford Fields, DO, East Greenwich, RI

Each article also discusses the state of the literature. Is it weak or strong? Based mainly on consensus or tradition? In particular, we stress any major randomized controlled trials and nationally published guidelines. And we're not afraid to admit when there is little hard evidence to support the dogma. We criticize gaps in logic and leaps of faith contained in prominent guidelines, and critically assess the science behind the recommendations. This evidence-based style is critical to the every day practice of our readers:

"I love your topics and your evidence-based medicine approach as well as how you cover controversial aspects of each topic. And very importantly, I perceive a very unbiased publication, unlike some others. The algorithms are highly appreciated for those of us on the front lines." -- David Wagner, MD, Chino Hills, CA


In addition to critically appraising the literature, Emergency Medicine Practice articles provide you with a number of important clinical tools. These tools include targeted questions regarding the patient history and suggestions regarding a focused physical exam. We concentrate on the “big-ticket” questions and help you as a practicing physician in your search for crucial physical findings. 

Each issue also provides algorithms (Clinical Pathways) to assist in decision-making. These easy-to-follow algorithms identify the key decision points in testing and treatment. And each recommendation includes a class of evidence, helping you determine if it's the right treatment for your patient. Many of our readers refer to these algorithms in daily practice:

"Emergency Medicine Practice provides an excellent update/review of the  practice and provides significant CME hours without leaving home. I have retained every copy I have received for the past 5 or so years. The reviews are always up-to-date and accurate and readily applicable to my daily practice. The flow charts are used in my ED every day." -- Stephen Shy, DO, MBA, Huntington, WV

With your Emergency Medicine Practice subscription, you receive 12 monthly evidence-based print issues designed to improve patient care. And each issue includes 4 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM, 4 ACEP Category 1 credits, 4 AAFP Prescribed credits, and 4 AOA Category 2B credits -- that's 48 evidence-based CME credits per year.

Plus, you also receive full online access to our entire article database -- more than 130 evidence-based articles -- and you can earn up to 4 CME credits from any issue published within the last three years (that's an additional 144 CME credits at no extra charge!).

AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM per year.
