Slide notes:Who are the stakeholders that benefit from Comparative Effectiveness Research? They may be patient-consumers, clinicians, policymakers, or purchasers. All of these groups can use CER to make informed decisions that will improve health care and quality based on reliable science. Comparative Effectiveness Research also provides information about benefits and harms and can also compare costs of treatments based on outcomes. CER also helps patients and physicians to choose between treatments, especially when more than one treatment option is available to the patient. It is a partnership tool that physicians can use to help their patients choose the best options. 12
