A-med starts co-operation with the Institute for Worldwide Information- Transfer in Medicine (IWIMED GmbH)
More than 100.000 medical publications worldwide are published each month. To master this flood of information, a structured approach in the assessment of these publications is essential to identify those which are really game-changing. IWIMED does this by strictly applying evidence-based medicine guidelines. A-med supports IWIMED (Institute for Worldwide Information Transfer in Medicine) in their efforts. The target is, on the one hand, to offer guidelines to physicians and patients which are elaborated according evidence-based rules, readable and workable with in a condensed form. On the other hand the IWIMED team assesses publications according to PIC rules aiming to identify those, which will change the way of practice.
