PubMed Health The National Library of Medicine and the National Center for Biotechnology Information have released the new and improved PubMed Health website. Focusing on reviews of clinical effectiveness research, PubMed Health provides easy-to-read summaries for consumers, as well as full technical reports.

PubMed Health is based on systematic reviews of clinical trials, showing what treatments and prevention methods have been proven to work, and what remains unknown.

The PubMed Health database has been built in partnership with the US's Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the UK's National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), the German Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care (IQWiG), and The Cochrane Collaboration, among others.

Current NCME-TV Program Poster
Promoting Heart-Healthy Eating to Optimize Cardiovascular Nutrition
Health e Galaxy Program #911 (35 minutes)

Certified for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit
 through February 11,2017

"For weight control and reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, a focus on healthy foods and overall dietary patterns -- rather than individual nutrients -- is most consistent with modern nutritional evidence. In this video segment, excerpted from the weeklong Brigham and Women’s “Cardiovascular Medicine Update for the Practitioner” Board Review Course (available at www.hegalaxy.com), Dr. Mozaffarian reviews contemporary principles of healthy eating and explores several evidence-based approaches to maximize behavior changes such as shared setting of focused, proximal goals; regularly scheduled follow-up; self-monitoring, and in-person, telephone, or electronic feedback. According to Dr. Mozaffarian, community and policy approaches are also effective, and healthcare providers or organizations should advocate such measures to improve the health of their patients, their communities, their families, and themselves."
