Long-Term Care & Residential Care: Evidence-Based Resources
These resources are the result of a collaboration between RxFiles & CADTH
RxFiles is an academic detailing program providing objective, comparative drug information to physicians, pharmacists and allied health professionals. The program began in 1997 as a service to Saskatoon family physicians and has expanded broadly to now support a wide range of multidisciplinary health care professionals with evidence-informed information.
The Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health (CADTH) is an independent not-for profit agency that delivers timely, evidence-based information to health care leaders about the effectiveness and efficiency of health technologies including drugs, medical devices, vaccines, and medical/surgical, and therapeutic procedures.
The works of both organizations mesh effectively to support the collective sharing of unbiased clinical information on drug and non-drug technologies and treatments in all health care sectors.
While most included resources on this website originate from the RxFiles and CADTH, additional resources (after careful review) have also been included to support practical usage and implementation of quality improvement practices.
Note: Some of the resources listed under "Health Care Providers" may require a subscription to the RxFiles website in order to access the content. Saskatchewan health care providers can gain access through shirp.ca (must sign up for a FREE account). Most Saskatchewan health region sites will have automatic access via IP recognition.
