As a medical librarian, I spend a lot of time with reports of the evidence — studies, guidelines, systematic reviews — upon which evidence-based practice stands.
Recent postings in Dr. Marya Zilberberg’s Healthcare, etc. highlight the need for critical analysis of “evidence-based guidelines” and the studies from which they are built, particularly as the guidelines become the basis for current practice, reimbursement, and our judgment of what constitutes “good medicine.”

Michigan Health Go Local (MHGL) is committed to serving the consumer health information needs of Michigan’s residents. Even though National Library of Medicine is withdrawing technical support to the MHGL website/database, we want to continue providing reliable local health services information for all Michigan communities, as we look into alternative hosting options and collaborative partners who share that mission.
Please visit the MGHL Blog and give us your feedback via the short survey. http://migolocal.blogspot.com/
Thanks for your support.
