Abstract/Summary The gap between how effective treatments for different medical conditions are seen to be and how effective they are proven to be remains tantalizing. Many information professionals and users perceive a need for information on the effectiveness of medical therapies that is supported by medical evidence from the research literature. This presentation describes the method used by Medical Evidence Matters, published by ProQuest, that enables researchers, clinicians, librarians, and decision-makers to assess therapy options by comparing outcomes from medical research. The presentation will explain how research data is extracted by the Medical Evidence Matters editorial team and presented in a set of templates that allow users to compare and contrast results from clinical trials and other research and to find the research that is relevant to specific patients.
