Adjunctive Devices for Patients With Acute Coronary Syndromes Undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

Slide: 2 of 39

Outline of This CME Activity

This slide set is based on the research presented in a comparative effectiveness review (CER), Adjunctive Devices for Patients With Acute Coronary Syndrome Undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention, which was developed by the University of Connecticut/Hartford Hospital Evidence-based Practice Center for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) under Contract No. 290-2007-10067-I. CERs represent systematic reviews of the literature and usually compare two or more types of treatments, such as different drugs, devices, or procedures for the same disease. The methods used to develop this CER followed version 1.0 of the Methods Reference Guide for Effectiveness and Comparative Effectiveness Reviews published by AHRQ.

This activity will briefly review the comparative effectiveness review process, including the specific questions addressed in this CER and the results from this research. Finally, the data that are most applicable to clinicians and policy decisionmakers are presented.
