Building a learning healthcare network: The transition of the Vascular Interventional Surgical Care Outcomes Assessment Program to the Comparative Effectiveness Research Translation Network

Graduate Certificate in Comparative Effectiveness Research

Comparative effectiveness research is a growing field that aims to generate evidence to improve health care decisions for patients and providers. It examines the benefits and risks of different medical or healthcare interventions, including drugs and medical technology. The results of these comparison studies are used by medical professionals to make better informed healthcare decisions and thereby improve patient care.
