‘KCE has read for you’: a search for relevant and reliable scientific information for policy makers
KCE has read for you
Worldwide, a large number of scientific, independent institutions such as NICE, IQWIG, etc., perform the same kind of research as the KCE. Their findings may also be relevant for the Belgian healthcare. The same goes for important scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals (British Medical Journal, the Lancet, the New England Journal, etc) or for decisions made by official bodies such as the European Medicines Agency (EMA), the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), the European Commission, etc.
The KCE-researchers, who are constantly immersed in the international scientific literature, are well placed to identify the publications that are of particular interest for the Belgian medical world. Through the ‘KCE has read for you', they will regularly provide simplified summaries of their critical reading of these publications, summarized in less than two pages. 'KCE has read for you' do not include any clinical or political recommendations.
