We facilitate research to improve clinical treatment decisions and public health for diverse populations. We educate clinician-scientists in a range of CER methods.
Comparative effectiveness research (CER) is designed to improve health care decision-making by providing evidence about the effectiveness, benefits and harms of different treatment options. CER is the generation and synthesis of evidence that compares the benefits and harms of alternative methods to prevent, diagnose, treat and monitor a clinical condition, or to improve the delivery of care.
