BECOME A SENTINEL READER

The Health Information Research Unit at McMaster University, which prepares Evidence-Based Medicine, is recruiting frontline clinicians to help define the best research to support evidence-based clinical care and develop a “next generation” information service exactly tailored to the interests of practicing doctors.

Our objective is to help physicians keep up to date with information that is truly relevant to the care of their own patients.

If you are an MD who has completed formal training and are in clinical practice at least part-time in internal medicine or its subspecialties or general practice/family medicine, then you qualify to participate.

AS A SENTINEL READER:

  • We’ll send you hot-off-the-press articles that apply to your discipline(s), identified by a hand-search of over 100 journals, and that have been checked for scientific merit.

  • You will rate the article on 2 scales: one for newsworthiness and another for relevance.

  • The most pertinent articles will be abstracted in ACP Journal Club and Evidence-Based Medicine and eventually incorporated into a new online service.

FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION:

  • Earn CME credits (North America)—you will earn 1 CME credit for every 4 articles read and rated in our system (based on usual reading times to date).

  • Stellar articles—we will show you articles that you and your colleagues rated as 6 or more, on a scale of 7, in your discipline(s).

  • We’ll collate your ratings with at least 2 other colleagues in your discipline and use your ratings to build an evidence-based information system for family physicians and internists.
