The DynaMed partnership with McMaster University allows DynaMed to use the ratings from their network to help select the best available evidence that is both relevant and useful for clinicians.
The DynaMed partnership with McMaster University allows
DynaMed to use the McMaster PLUS systematic identification and validation
of clinical research articles, and the ratings and comments from their global network
of physicians across disciplines to help select the best available evidence
that is useful for clinicians. This partnership brings together the two systems
that have established world-class systematic evidence monitoring services.
McMaster University’s Health Information Research Unit uses
its Critical Appraisal Process to identify studies and systematic reviews that
are scientifically sound. Articles from the 120 top journals that meet the
validation criteria are then rated by some of more than 8,000 frontline
clinicians for relevance and newsworthiness through the McMaster Online Rating
of Evidence (MORE™) system. The entire database of selected articles, their
ratings, and rater comments is available as McMaster PLUS.
