Population Health Evidence that Matter (PopEMs)
Population Health Evidence that Matters (PopEMs) are biweekly peer reviewed electronic evidence-summaries for Public Health and Preventive Medicine specialists in Canada. They are a population medicine version of the popular ‘patient oriented evidence that matters (InfoPOEMs)’ distributed to clinicians by the Canadian Medical Association.
PopEMs provide a brief review and analysis of a current practice-relevant article or report from the public health and medical literature and are designed to be read in <5 minutes. The PopEM project is part of an effort to help PHPM practitioners and medical officers of health to meet the MOH Core Competency Domains. Click here to see a PopEM sample. The PopEMs project is administered by your national specialty society – the Public Health Physicians of Canada (PHPC).
