Hospital staff need quick access to the latest adverse event data and evidence-based research to ensure drug prescribing decisions reflect the most current evidence.

Evidex provides the latest clinical data to facilitate real-time evidence-based decisions which help keep patients safe. This webinar will cover how to search Evidex by drug product, drug/adverse event reactions, and strategies for comparison of the safety of drugs within a class, indication, or mechanism of action.
