McMaster Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Workshops

Preliminary Agenda - 2018

The Workshop Format

The EBCP Workshop is aimed at clinicians, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, occupational and physiotherapists, dentists, chiropractors and other health-care professionals who wish to go beyond simply learning evidence-based clinical practice (EBCP) and advance their skills in communicating EBCP concepts. The workshop uses small-group formats for participants to practice their skills. Participants should be prepared to practice their own teaching in the small group format.

The workshop is offered as a one-week intensive course. Participants will be learning in interactive small groups led by clinical epidemiologists and practitioners from McMaster and other institutions.

The workshop will consist of small and large group sessions, individual study time and, for the teaching stream, opportunities for workshop participants to lead teaching sessions using their own ideas, materials, and reflecting their own experiences.
