Blog keeps track of all those guidelines


A new blog could help internists stay on top of the hundreds of major guidelines, position statements, meta-analyses, systematic reviews and articles offering by agencies, organizations and journals. Evidence Alert compiles them to a single page, and will even push links to your RSS feed reader.

As evidence how much this service is needed, Evidence Alert compiled 110 guidelines and reviews in May alone.

A second blog lists health literacy and patient communication issues.

The LSU Health Sciences Center Medical Library hosts the blogs, which grew out of work by Julie Esparza with hospitalists at Deaconess Health System and continues through her position as clinical medical librarian LSUHSC-S.
