Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Comparative Effectiveness Review (CER) Development

Topics are nominated through a public process, which includes submissions from health care professionals, professional organizations, the private sector, policymakers, members of the public, and others. A systematic review of all relevant clinical studies is conducted by independent researchers, funded by AHRQ, to synthesize the evidence in a report summarizing what is known and not known about the select clinical issue. The research questions and the results of the report are subject to expert input, peer review, and public comment. The results of these reviews are summarized into clinician summaries and consumer summaries for use in decision-making and in discussions with patients. The guides and the full reports, with references for included and excluded studies, are available at
