MDCalc recently began hosting theNNT.com – which publishes critical reviews of the evidence behind clinically-relevant questions, designed to be used at the bedside and beyond to help us make the best evidenced-based decisions for our patients. "NNT" stands for the “number needed to treat,” a way to quantify the absolute benefit of a treatment, such that it can be weighed apples to apples against the NNH, or "number needed to harm".
EMCrit is devoted to Maximally Aggressive Care: Maximally Aggressive Curative Care and Maximally Aggressive Palliative Care.

Every two weeks, EMCrit posts a full ~20-minute podcast. In between, the site gets filled with blogposts, links, and EMCrit Wees (miniature podcasts). CME is available for EMCrit Podcasts.
