Course Description

Teaching Evidence-Based Medicine Workshop

September 11th – 14th 2016
St Hughs College, Oxford
Fee £1200 includes all refreshments and course materials

Teaching Evidence-Based Medicine is designed for all health care professionals, who have some knowledge of critical appraisal and experience in practicing evidence-based health care, and who want to explore issues around teaching. Students will learn in small groups and be facilitated to practice and develop their skills in teaching evidence-based practice. Participants will also learn educational strategies to develop a curriculum and design evaluation.

You should consider attending if you:

* Are committed to patient-centred learning
* Believe in the process of small-group learning
* Take an active role in small group learning

This offers access to four full days of teaching by world renowned experts in evidence-based health care at the University of Oxford, but excludes the academic assignment offered to students on award-bearing programmes of study.  A Certificate of Completion is issued at the end of the course.

By the end of this module you will have learned how to:

* Formulate clear answerable questions and teach on this subject
* Understand search strategies and be familiar with different resources
* Teach an aspect of critical appraisal effectively and with confidence
* Understand the range of study designs and appraisals techniques required to teach evidence-based health care
* Teach an aspect of biostatistics in health care
* Understand the components of an effective curriculum for evidence-based practice

There will be two main themes running throughout the workshop:

  1. Teaching will be addressed through the exploration of different educational models for teaching evidence-based practice and identification and discussion of issues of pedagogy, curriculum design development and maintenance. The aim will be to promote the teaching of evidence-based health care at your home institution
  2. Personal Development will be addressed by offering guidance and help in extending and advancing participants’ existing critical appraisal and teaching skills.

Format
Most of the Workshop will be conducted in small groups in which participants will develop and test their own EBM packages. Plenary sessions will present and discuss general issues in planning, executing, and evaluating EBM, and will demonstrate large-group strategies for teaching EBM. Searching and study time will be provided each day, and informal social events will encourage free discussion and the establishment of ongoing links.

Materials and Preparation
Participants will receive EBM packages in diagnosis, prognosis, therapy/prevention, quality of care, systematic reviews, and economic analysis appropriate to their fields of health care, plus background readings, a core EBM textbook and software tools to help practice and teach EBM. You will benefit most from the Workshop if you bring your own EBM packages for testing in simulated teaching situations.

Facilitators
Workshop facilitators have been practicing and teaching EBM at sites across the UK, Europe and North America and Australasia. The Workshop will be chaired by Dr Kamal Mahtani

“The plenaries were outstanding, participant’s level and enthusiasm was superb. I am taking away a lot of ideas and tools to apply to my setting. Every moment was well spent both academically and socially.”
