Revisiones sistemáticas valoradas y puntuadas en Health Evidence


De Health Evidence ya hablamos en su día en este blog. Es un formidable recurso para mantenerse actualizado ya que sus responsables valoran críticamente las revisiones sistemáticas que se publican en las revistas biomédicas y les otorgan una puntuación según su calidad, de cero a diez puntos, dato objetivo muy de agradecer y que ayuda al clínico a calibrar mejor su importancia real.

Health Evidence dispone de un sistema de alertas personalizable, por lo que es posible suscribirse a actualizaciones por segmentos de edad. Os mostramos a continuación los resúmenes puntuados de varias revisiones sistemáticas de interés para todos los pediatras, que me han llegado en el último boletín de Health Evidence.
