Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials

  • Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) is a bibliographical database of controlled trials. This is an important resource because using MEDLINE alone will not yield all possible reports of controlled trials. http://uscc.cochrane.org/en/newPage3.html. Accessed March 24, 2010.

  • The Carlat Psychiatry Report is a monthly newsletter that provides clinically relevant, unbiased information on psychiatric practice and psychotropic medications and openly discusses alternatives to psychopharmacological treatment. http://www.thecarlatreport.com. Accessed March 24, 2010.
     

  • PharmedOut is a physician-run project funded through the Attorney General Consumer and Prescriber Education grant program that “empowers physicians to identify and counter inappropriate pharmaceutical promotion practices. PharmedOut promotes evidence-based medicine by providing news, resources, and links to pharma-free CME courses.” http://www.pharmedout.org. Accessed March 24, 2010.
