Would you like to learn effective methods to incorporate Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) into your teaching?

Evidence-Based Medicine:
Current Trends and Effective Teaching Methods

Wednesday, October 6, 2010
12:15 p.m. - 3:15 p.m.
White Hall

Medical educators have increasingly embraced Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) since its introduction as a systematic approach to clinical decision making, medical practice and education in the early 1990s. Despite the availability of authoritative texts, teaching the basic EBM skills of formulating questions, finding the relevant literature efficiently, appraising that literature and applying it to patient care remains challenging. Teachers are regularly in a position to communicate the principles of these processes to learners in a variety of settings, including ward rounds, at the bedside, during journal club exercises, and in formal lectures and seminars. This session will offer some advice to help make the most of these teaching opportunities.

Participants will be able to:

  1. Explain background EBM methodology particularly pertaining to student expectations in the clinical rotations, facilitating greater correlation and cooperation between biennium 1 and biennium 2 learning objectives and teaching processes.
  2. Share experiences and provide guidance on practical and effective methods to teach EBM.
  3. Analyze existing teaching activities and design an EBM teaching session.
