FSRH CEU Rebrands Members’ Enquiry Service to “Members’ Evidence Requests”
Date: 22 Mar 2018
Type: FSRH News and Information
The FSRH Clinical Effectiveness Unit (CEU) recently rebranded this service from “Members’ Enquiry Service” to “Members’ Evidence Requests” (MER) to reflect the nature of the service. The remit of the FSRH CEU is to provide a review of the available literature relating to a particular method(s) of contraception by women with specific characteristics that is not already covered in existing FSRH guidance.
The FSRH CEU provides an evidence-based enquiry service for FSRH members. The FSRH CEU will conduct a literature review and summarise the available evidence in relation to a particular medical condition and/or contraceptive method. The recommendations given should be considered as guidance only and is meant to be used along with clinical judgement to guide clinical practice or policy.
The evidence request service cannot provide clinical advice on individual cases. The FSRH CEU strongly recommends that clinicians discuss any complex clinical query with their specialist contraceptive lead.
Current Members can log in to My FSRH to view existing requests and answers and to make a new evidence request as part of their membership benefits. After logging, click on 'Members' evidence request' to see the full database of questions and answers. You can search by keyword.
