Last week I asked users from primary care to rate a series of new articles added to Trip. We asked them to let us know which of 12 articles they thought looked interesting/important. With 342 votes the results are in:
- Systematic literature review on effectiveness of self-management support interventions in patients with chronic conditions and low socio-economic status. EvidenceUpdate
- Shared decision making in primary care can reduce antibiotic prescribing. NIHR Dissemination Centre
- Multimorbidity and polypharmacy. NICE, advice
- Extended hours in primary care linked to reductions in minor A&E attendances. NIHR Dissemination Centre
- Antimicrobial stewardship: changing risk-related behaviours in the general population. NICE, Clinical Guideline
- Capsaicin 8% Patch in Painful Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study. EvidenceUpdates
- Support at Home: Interventions to Enhance Life in Dementia (SHIELD) evidence, development and evaluation of complex interventions. NIHR HTA
- Randomised controlled trial and economic analysis of an internet-based weight management programme: POWeR+ (Positive Online Weight Reduction). NIHR HTA
- Cutaneous melanoma. SIGN Guideline
- Nitric oxide breath analysis for the management of asthma. HTA Database
- Long-Term Continuous Ambulatory ECG Monitors and External Cardiac Loop Recorders for Cardiac Arrhythmia. Health Quality Ontario
- Canadian Youth Perceptions on Cannabis. Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse
Systematic literature review on effectiveness of self-management support interventions in patients with chronic conditions and low socio-economic status won by a single vote.
What was most interesting to me was that it still only obtained 13% of the votes (while those towards the bottom received only 4%). So, only around 1 in 8 people voted for it. I was expecting higher scores. Perhaps that’s a reflection on the diversity of primary care and the diversity of our users. Perhaps one to test in a different speciality!
