    • 15. The problem … Traditional bibliographic search 100s of full-text articles 100s of hours reading them 1000s of references Need to make a judgement on how well the research is carried out Need to decide if relevant for individual patient Need to extract data from the articles Time-consuming How do you find the most effective therapies for known conditions?
    • 16. What is Medical Evidence Matters?
      • Helps the doctor to find the peer-reviewed research relevant to his / her patient
      • Helps the medical researcher to find the peer-reviewed research relevant to his / her study
