Slide notes:12 There are many sources of syntheses and synopses. The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews and PubMed Health from the National Library of Medicine are both excellent resources for syntheses. Synopses are also offered by publications such as Clinical Evidence , which bills itself as an evidence formulary and draws on Cochrane Reviews and other syntheses and individual studies to summarize evidence. Another important resource for synopses is InfoPOEMS [info-poems]POEMS stands for Patient-Oriented Evidence that Matters.
