What are Evidence Summaries?

May 15, 2015, 11:51 AM

Evidence Summaries are short, easy-to-read documents that present scientific evidence from three high-quality professional databases that address clinical, public health and health-system policy, and social-system policy questions. Each summary includes the basic findings from research, and include key messages that can be acted upon. The summaries focus specifically on the best available research about health and social aspects of aging that has implications for how to stay healthy, active and engaged, and manage our health conditions, as we grow older.
