C176 - Bedside Evidence-based Medicine: How to Find and Deconstruct Articles in Order to Take Care of Patients II

Event Time: Wednesday April 26, 2017 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Practice, Policy, and Ethics
Director(s): Gary Gronseth MD, FAAN
Description: Faculty will de-mystify EBM concepts and equip participants with the knowledge and tools needed to translate evidence (a published article, a research presentation) into action (a specific intervention). Rather than relying on traditional didactic presentations, faculty will emphasize small group problem-solving using the peer instruction model. Participants should plan on attending both Part I and Part II and bring a laptop with Microsoft Excel, a USB flash drive, and wireless capability; a tablet, such as an iPad, will not be sufficient. This program complements C161: Bedside Evidence-based Medicine: How to Find and Deconstruct Articles in Order to Take Care of Patients I, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants will understand the principles of evidence-based medicine and critical review, and how these apply to the bedside practice of neurology; be able to deconstruct published articles addressing therapeutic questions, assess their accuracy and rigor, and make appropriate evidence-based clinical decisions; dramatically reduce their susceptibility to being misled by bias and the misuse of statistical procedures; and feel comfortable developing, investigating, and publishing the findings of their own clinical research questions.
