2014 Institute - Change of Location
The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus Health Sciences Library is pleased to host the Institute in our modern, new campus near Denver, Colorado. The University is conveniently located between Denver International Airport and downtown Denver, Colorado.
Completing this survey will add you to the list for priority notification that the registration is open for the 2015 Evidence Based Practice for Librarians Institute. You will be notified when a date and location has been set.
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.
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.
