The Core Investigator will divide their time equally between conducting evidence synthesis for the VA ESP and supporting methods development to advance comparative effectiveness research through the AHRQ SRC.
VHA Health Service Research and Development Service (HSR&D) created an Evidence-based Synthesis Program (ESP) in 2005 to help guide VA policy based on existing evidence. The ESP produces evidence reviews to address important, Veteran-specific topics to inform VA clinical policies and programs in such areas as the development of clinical practice guidelines, setting direction for future research to address gaps in knowledge, identifying the evidence to support VA performance measures, and rationalizing drug formulary decisions. Many topics focus on the health delivery system and address the broader social issues among Veterans. Because of the emphasis on collaboration between VA stakeholders and the evidence review team, ESP work products can have a strong impact on national policy.
The SRC assists the AHRQ Effective Health Care Program in developing a research agenda for outcomes, comparative effectiveness reviews (CERs), and appropriateness of pharmaceuticals, devices, and health care services as well as providing methodological support to the 11 Evidence-based Practice Centers (EPCs) in North America.
