EHC Issues Call for Topic Nominations for Evidence-Based Health Care Practice Reports

Per the notice below, the Effective Health Care (EHC) Program is seeking nominations for topics for their evidence-based health care practice reports.

Call for Nominations for Future EHC Reports by June 3, 2022

What health care decisions are you struggling with?  Would a review of the scientific evidence help inform this decision?  Share your ideas with the Effective Health Care (EHC) Program.  EHC will use these ideas to determine the focus of its evidence reports for next fiscal year (i.e., EHC can provide an evidence report at no cost).  Your input is important.

You can suggest a topic for a future evidence report until June 3, 2022 at:  https://effectivehealthcare.ahrq.gov/get-involved/suggest-topic.

The EHC Program reviews and summarizes the available evidence on current health care issues, such as tests, treatments, and methods of health care delivery, and describes their advantages or disadvantages.  These reviews are based on relevant published and unpublished scientific literature and provide comprehensive, evidence-based information to consumers, clinicians, and policymakers.

Evidence reports can help:

  • Clinicians and policymakers understand the benefits and harms of different tests and treatments;
  • Health systems and policymakers understand the best options for implementing a new program or intervention; and
  • Patients make better decisions about their health care options;
  • Understand health inequities and can inform actions to reduce health disparities.

The EHC Program will review these nominations for potential reports that could start later this year.  EHC will review every proposed topic with our selection criteria (https://effectivehealthcare.ahrq.gov/about/epc/nomination/).  Information about why this is an issue for you, and what you would like to see changed will especially be helpful.  You can see other topics that have been proposed at: https://effectivehealthcare.ahrq.gov/get-involved/nominated-topics/.  If you have any questions, contact: epc@ahrq.hhs.gov.
