• Research, Family Medicine Journals

    It is in the vital interest of our members and patients and consistent with the current research mission for the AAFP to ensure strong venues for publications of original research. Therefore, the AAFP will take a leadership role to assure the maintenance of at least one journal within the discipline, in print or other innovative media, that publishes original family medicine research.

    The AAFP supports the inclusion of quantitative risk information such as absolute risk, incidence of adverse events, specific population information, number needed to treat (NNT) and number needed to harm (NNH) be published in medical literature along with evidence-based recommendations, when appropriate.
