McGraw-Hill Professional and JAMA Launch New Online Evidence-Based Medicine, Clinical and Educational Resource
Date:1/28/2009

NEW YORK and CHICAGO, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- McGraw-Hill Professional, a leading global provider of information resources for the scientific and medical communities, and JAMA, the world's most widely circulated medical journal, have announced the joint development and launch of a new state-of-the-art digital resource, JAMAevidence. This innovative learning tool provides medical students, residents, educators, and clinicians with the fundamental tools required for understanding and applying the medical literature and making clinical diagnoses.

JAMAevidence (www.jamaevidence.com) provides full-text access to both the second edition of The User's Guides to the Medical Literature and the newly published The Rational Clinical Examination. Authored by the leading minds in evidence-based medicine, the User's Guides to the Medical Literature is the number one guide to the principles and clinical application of evidence-based medicine. A compilation of the popular JAMA series, The Rational Clinical Examination is the ultimate guide to the evidence-based clinical encounter and physical examination. In JAMAevidence these preeminent titles are combined with online-only content, updates, teaching tools, media, and interactive features to convey the best practices of evidence-based medicine -- including the careful assessment and interpretation of medical research, as well as the application of that research to ensure the optimal care of the patient.

Updated monthly, JAMAevidence is designed to meet the needs of students, educators, and practitioners alike. The online Education Guides enhance classroom and conference learning by offering detailed presentations -- some with instructor notes -- on core topics in evidence-based medicine. The Education Guides are available to subscribers as both online slideshows and downloadable PowerPoint presentations. Interactive worksheets enable users to hone their critical appraisal skills and master the information cycle, while question wizards assist in formulating well-built clinical queries. Functional calculators and nomograms, organized by therapy, harm, diagnosis, and prognosis, provide evidence tools for use in daily practice. Finally, new podcasts are posted each month, bringing analysis and commentary from leaders in evidence-based medicine directly to users.

"Evidence-based medicine is one of the most important concepts introduced to the medical curriculum and to clinical practice in the last 50 years. As such, we are proud to join with JAMA to provide this authoritative resource to the medical community," said Philip Ruppel, president, McGraw-Hill Professional.

"We are delighted to have JAMAevidence join the family of JAMA and the Archives Journals. JAMAevidence will help physicians and other clinicians, students and teachers, understand and apply evidence-based medicine in their practices and in educational settings, said Catherine D. DeAngelis, MD, MPH, editor in chief, JAMA and Archives Journals.

JAMAevidence was developed under the guidance of the world's leaders in evidence-based medicine, including Gordon Guyatt, MD, Drummond Rennie, MD, Robert Hayward, MD, and David Simel, MD. The wisdom and insights of these and other leaders will continue to guide the growth of the site.
