SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Proposed Project Online Submission Form for Supplemental Evidence and Data for Systematic Reviews for the EvidenceBased Practice Center Program The AHRQ Evidence-based Practice Center (EPC) Program develops PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 evidence reports and technology assessments that summarize evidence for federal and other partners on topics relevant to clinical and other health care organization and delivery issues— specifically those that are common, expensive, and/or significant for the Medicare and Medicaid populations. Better understanding and use of evidence in practice, policy, and delivery of care improves the quality of health care. These reports, reviews, and technology assessments are based on rigorous, comprehensive syntheses and analyses of the scientific literature on topics. EPC reports and assessments emphasize explicit and detailed documentation of methods, rationale, and assumptions. EPC reports are conducted in accordance with an established policy on financial and nonfinancial interests. This research has the following goals: • Use research methods to gather knowledge on the effectiveness or comparative effectiveness of treatments, screening, diagnostic, management or healthcare delivery strategies for specific medical conditions, both published and unpublished, to evaluate the quality of research studies and the evidence from these studies. • Promote the use of evidence in healthcare decision making to improve healthcare and health. • Identify research gaps to inform future research investments. The 2011 Institute of Medicine report ‘‘Finding What Works in Health Care: Standards for Systematic Review’’ includes an assessment of publication bias through the identification of unpublished studies. This is an important source for bias which could affect the nature and direction of research findings. Identifying and including the results of these additional unpublished studies may provide a more complete and accurate assessment of an intervention’s effect on outcomes. An important way to identify unpublished studies is through requests to medical device manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, and other intervention developers. The proposed project involves sending a notification via an email listserv and via Federal Register notice as needed of the opportunity to submit information on unpublished studies or other scientific information to the EPC Program website, with one request per systematic review topic. Because research on each topic must be completed in a timely manner in order for it to be useful, the collections are never ongoing—there is one request and collection per topic.
