PREFACE

VA’s Health Services Research and Development (HSR&D) Service works to improve the cost, quality, and outcomes of healthcare for our nation’s veterans. Collaborating with VA leaders, managers, and policy makers, HSR&D focuses on important healthcare topics that are likely to have significant impact on quality improvement efforts. One significant collaborative effort is HSR&D’s Evidence-based Synthesis Program (ESP). Through this program, HSR&D provides timely and accurate evidence syntheses on targeted healthcare topics. These products will be disseminated broadly throughout VA and will: inform VA clinical policy, develop clinical practice guidelines, set directions for future research to address gaps in knowledge, identify the evidence to support VA performance measures, and rationalize drug formulary decisions.

HSR&D provides funding for four ESP Centers. Each Center has an active and publicly acknowledged VA affiliation and also serves as an Evidence Based Practice Center (EPC) supported by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). The Centers will each generate three evidence syntheses annually on clinical practice topics of key importance to VHA leadership and policymakers. A planning committee with representation from HSR&D, Patient Care Services (PCS), Quality Enhancement Research Initiative (QUERI), Office of Quality and Performance (OQP), and the VISN Clinical and Quality Management Officers, has been established to identify priority topics and key stakeholder concerns and to ensure the quality of final reports. Comments on this evidence report are welcome and can be sent to Susan Schiffner, ESP Program Manager, at vog.av@renffihcS.nasuS.
