There are over 5000 biomedical publications indexed on PUBMED every day, an impossible volume of research for clinicians of any specialty to follow. Prior research has demonstrated that the average emergency medicine clinician must read 26 articles in the Annals of Emergency Medicine to find one that is practice-changing and ready to use today.
AGEM Journal Club is a secondary-peer reviewed product that was developed to reduce the “number needed to read” to one and thereby shorten the knowledge-to-action pipeline from decades to less than one year. The evidence is filtered for quality and then rated for clinical relevance by practicing geriatric emergency physicians around the world just like you.
The BEEM Rater Tool, the only reliable and valid instrument available to assess clinical relevance, is used as the final filter before disseminating the highest rated research evidence to you in easy-to-read, one-page synopses. If you want to become an AGEM Journal Club rater, please contact Dr. Ali Southern (email@example.com).
