EVIDENCE-BASED REVIEWS

We are pleased to help support an evidence-based effort by California Pharmacist and Pro Pharma Pharmaceutical Consultants, Inc. who are providing pharmacy interns an opportunity to enhance their critical appraisal skills and, in turn, provide a service to the medical decision-making community by performing evidence-based reviews on selected studies.

As peer reviewers and guest editors, Delfini works closely with Craig Stern, CPhA Chair, Editorial Review Committee, and Cathi Lord, California Pharmacist Journal Managing Editor, to provide tools and just-in-time training along with reviewing and editing content.

These articles first appeared in the California Pharmacist, a publication of the California Pharmacists Association. For more information, visit www.cpha.com

With permission, we are happy to be able to share these reviews with Delfini readers:
