The article reports that Sharon Straus, new editor of the "Canadian Medical Association Journal," will try to present information on various medical researches which can help physicians in their practice. She has plans to expand the systematic and clinical narrative reviews of the journal. She says that physicians have ample information stored in their memory and they struggle to bring the results of research in their treatment to improve the quality of lives of their patients. She mentions that many studies are not presented in user-friendly format which pose as a barrier to knowledge transfer.
