One day introduction to Evidence-Based Medicine – David Nunan & Nik Bobrovitz
This workshop is intended to serve as an introduction to evidence-based medicine. It is aimed at clinicians and other health care professionals who wish to gain knowledge of critical appraisal and experience in the practice of evidence-based health care.
Social Media and blogging is essential for those interested in dissemination of their work. This workshop is designed to take a hands on approach with participants gaining the experience to sign up to social media, to formulate a blog strategy including the basics of how to get started. By the end of this workshop participants should be able to produce a blog during the EvidenceLive Conference.
Over the past decades, the development of rigorous methods of research synthesis and the movement to apply research evidence to medical practice has shone a very bright light on the health research literature. Using reporting guidelines when writing (and reviewing) research manuscripts is a simple, cost-effective solution for improving completeness, accuracy and usability of medical research papers. The EQUATOR Network’s online platform provides easy access to all guidelines and other resources supporting scientists and journals in the responsible publication of health research. More information is available HERE.
Journal publications of randomised controlled trials have so far formed the basis for evidence of the effects of pharmaceuticals and biologics. In the last decade, progressively accumulating evidence has shown though using published literature is affected by reporting bias. This has evident implications for the reliability of any decision based on literature or its derivatives such as research synthesis.
This workshop will present and discuss some of these issues on the basis of experience of working with regulatory documents. More information is available HERE.
