2016 Priority Registration List

Completing this survey will add you to the list for priority notification that the registration is open for the 2016 Evidence Based Practice for Librarians Institute. You will be notified when a date has been set. 

Institute Description

Formerly hosted at Dartmouth (2008-2012), University of Calgary (2013), and now at University of Colorado Anschutz since 2014, this is an intensive, introductory, 3 day course. Through discussion and hands-on learning, you'll acquire skills needed to support evidence-based practice. We use an active, case-based approach in a comfortable, small-group environment. A hallmark of this institute is the low student-faculty ratio and the individual attention each participant receives.


Medical librarians who want to learn evidence-based clinical practice concepts in order to comfortably support and teach EBCP at their institutions. Attendance will be limited to 40 participants to maximize individual learning.

Learning Objectives

After completing the institute, you will be able to:

  • Identify and explain the concepts, issues and process of evidence-based clinical practice (EBCP).
  • Recognize different types of study designs and understand their strengths and limitations.
  • Create well-built, answerable clinical questions.
  • Use clinical questions to find the best evidence in the literature about the the diagnosis and treatment of disorders.
  • Identify and explain the criteria for judging the internal validity of randomized controlled trials (RCTs), systematic reviews, qualitative and diagnostic studies.
  • Identify roles that librarians can undertake in providing EBCP training and support to health care professionals.
