What sort of studies are included in the BEEM Course?

By Uncategorized

We regularly screen over 100 medical journals for studies related to the practice of emergency medicine. Our focus is on prospective studies with patient-oriented outcomes and on clinical practice guidelines but we also include some case-control and database studies. A copy of the title and conclusions of each selected study is sent to BEEM Raters—frontline emergency physicians around the world—who rate each article on its relevance to the clinical practice of emergency medicine.

Those articles with the highest ratings are critically appraised by a group of clinical epidemiologists and emergency physicians trained in evidence-based medicine. The studies that pass all of the quality assessments formulate the Best Evidence in Emergency Medicine and the BEEM reviews are presented at the BEEM Course.
