AMA Makes Strong Pitch to Include Prevention in CER

American Medical Association President Nancy H. Nielsen makes a strong case for including prevention and wellness in government-funded comparative effectiveness research (CER).

"We do not have CER findings in the area of wellness, prevention, nutrition and obesity, yet there is a wide range of available interventions," Nielsen says in National Journal's Health Care Blog. "Clarity from CER findings as to which intervention is the most effective will help physicians provide patients with the treatment most likely to have the best outcome."
