Submit a Suggestion for a New Evidence Review
The Evidence-based Practice Center (EPC) Program reviews the available evidence on current health care 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 These reviews are based on relevant published and unpublished scientific literature and provide comprehensive, science-based information to consumers, clinicians, and policymakers. Evidence reports can help patients make better decisions about their health care options and can help clinicians and policymakers understand the benefits and harms of different tests and treatments.
Federal agencies can partner with AHRQ through an Interagency Agreement (IAA) to support systematic reviews and technical briefs. To get started or for more information on the process of establishing an IAA with the AHRQ EPC Program, please contact email@example.com.
