This week, we highlight a Cochrane summary on the effects of asthma educational interventions in children who have visited the emergency department.  Read our first post here!

 

New resources available

Our research librarian and content advisors have been working hard to pull together the best evidence for the treatment and management of  pediatric conditions in the emergency department. This includes clinical practice guidelines and pathways, overviews of systematic reviews, systematic reviews and key studies.
