Slide notes:Comparative Effectiveness Research is particularly useful when new and emerging clinical interventions are identified. Researchers can review the current medical research and synthesize information that helps to identify gaps that exist between medical research, as it exists, and the needs of clinical medicine. Comparative Effectiveness Research can help to promote and generate new scientific evidence and analytic tools. It can also help to translate and disseminate research findings to multiple stakeholders both in the research and in the clinical patient care spectrum of health care. 11
