Clinical Questions Addressed by the CER (2 of 3)

In preparing the report on which this CME activity is based, the authors aimed to answer three Key Questions. Key Question 2 is listed below:

  • Is there evidence that effectiveness of medical, surgical, and newer forms of treatments vary for specific patient subgroups?
  • What are the characteristics of patients who have undergone these therapies, including the nature of previous medical therapy, severity of symptoms, age, sex, weight, and other demographic and medical factors?
  •  What are the provider characteristics for procedures including provider volume and setting (e.g., academic vs. community)?

CER = comparative effectiveness review
CME = continuing medical education
