McMaster Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Workshops

Course Description and Agenda

Come to McMaster University

EBCP Workshop Small Group Tutorial discussion at McMaster University
EBCP Workshop Small Group Tutorial discussion at McMaster University.

Come to McMaster, the birthplace of evidence-based health-care, to join in one of two closely related workshops. The first caters to clinicians who wish to improve their clinical practice through enhanced skills in reading, interpreting, and applying the medical literature. The second is designed for clinician educators interested in enhancing their skills for teaching the principles of evidence-based practice to others. Both workshops are tailored to faculty and community internists, hospitalists, and senior and incoming chief residents.

The workshop accepts clinicians from a wide variety of backgrounds; there are typically groups in internal medicine, pediatrics, emergency medicine, surgery, family medicine, gastroenterology, a Spanish group and a French group. This international workshop caters to all those interested in evidence-based practice and in medical education, and may be of particular interest to clinicians working in academic environments, program directors, chief residents, hospitalists, and educators with a focus on continuous quality improvement/quality assurance.

The workshop is aimed at clinicians, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, occupational and physiotherapists, dentists, naturopaths, chiropractors and other health-care professionals. The workshop uses small-group formats for participants to advance and practice their skills in using the medical literature and, for the teaching stream, to advance and practice their skills in teaching evidence-based practice to others.

Evidence-based clinical practice

Evidence-based clinical practice (EBCP) is an approach to health-care practice that explicitly acknowledges the evidence that bears on each patient management decision, the strength of that evidence, the benefits and risk of alternative management strategies, and the role of patients' values and preferences in trading off those benefits and risks.

This international workshop caters to all those interested in medical education, and may be of particular interest to program directors, chief residents, hospitalists, and educators with a focus on continuous quality improvement/quality assurance.
