FREE Clinician and Patient Resources from AHRQ

The U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) offers a variety of free evidence-based resources to help pharmacists and patients discuss treatment options and make informed treatment decisions. These resources are based on patient-centered outcomes research, also known as comparative effectiveness research. This research compares benefits and harms of different interventions and strategies to prevent, diagnose, treat, and monitor health conditions.
The findings are translated into useful formats for clinicians and patients, and can help pharmacists:

Current titles cover cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, breathing conditions, depression, pregnancy, and other conditions. Download materials at the links below or order FREE hard copies of the summary guides from AHRQ by calling 800-358-9295 and providing the code C-02.

AHRQ Summary Guides, CME and Other Resources for Clinicians – Clinician summary guides provide an overview of the clinical issue, a clinical bottom line summary, an overview of side effects and risks, dosage and price information for guides on medications, and other information. CME are approved for a multi-disciplinary audience of clinicians, including several accredited for pharmacists.

AHRQ Treatment Guides for Patients/Consumers (English and Spanish) – The patient versions of the summary guides are written in plain language and provide an overview of the condition in addition to the comparative effectiveness information.

To learn more about patient-centered outcomes research, visit AHRQ’s Effective Healthcare Program website. The Mississippi Pharmacist Association is partnering with AHRQ to make our members aware of these free resources.
