Institute Description:
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.

Audience:
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 32 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.
