Clinically Relevant Literature Study. Final Report.
Stearns, Norma S.; And Others
As reading plays a major role in the continuing education of a physician, relevancy to practice of the material selected by editors and ultimately read will theoretically result in an improvement of the continuing education process. If the selection criteria could be consistent for the writer, the editor, and the reader, then the message has a better chance of attaining its objectives. It has been the aim of this contract to establish and test criteria which can enable the journals to more easily fill their role as the vehicles for conveying the message, and thereby to improve both the continuing education process potential and the resultant quality of patient care. This study addressed itself to the development and evaluation of criteria for use in assessing the clinical relevance of journal articles to the information needs of practitioners in several clinical categories.
