The D. Samuel Gottesman Library is hosting “EBM and the Medical Librarian." This course is an introduction for medical librarians to evidence-based medicine (EBM) and the role the librarian can play in its practice. Participants will learn to identify the parts of a well-built clinical question and be able to judge the validity of studies, and ascertain the roles librarians can undertake in providing EBM training and support.
At the end of this course you will:
- Understand the EBM process
- Be able to construct a well-built clinical query
- Identify the key characteristics and pros and cons of the major study designs in medicine
- Identify the key validity criteria for therapy, and systematic reviews
- Be able to support EBM on a number of different levels
This course is certified for 8 MLA CE credits. Space is limited to 16 attendees.
