More information about the content is below.

Overview

This asynchronous online course is designed to introduce health and information professionals to the principles of evidence based practice (EBP). It will focus on the literature of evidence, epidemiological concepts, and, most importantly, the steps of the EBP process.

Formative feedback will be given throughout the course.

Learning Objectives

  • discuss evidence based practice (EBP) and its importance for clinical decision-making
  • formulate a clinical question using the PICO format
  • conduct an effective search of the literature, using advanced search strategies, in order to find the best primary and secondary sources of evidence
  • Apply appropriate criteria in appraising an article for validity and reliability
  • produce a formal EBM analysis using the CAT (Critically Appraised Topic) format

It will take approximately 20-30 hours to complete the course. Consider reserving 3 hours of dedicated time per unit for optimum benefit. The course is approved for 21 Medical Library Association (MLA) Continuing Education credits, and it is limited to 25 participants.

National Library of Medicine Seeking Feedback on Strategic Plan

(via Miranda Shake, Lakeview College of Nursing; original message from Dr. Stephen Greenberg, National Library of Medicine)

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) is undertaking a strategic planning process and is soliciting input from its broad stakeholder community. NLM leadership recognizes that many of our stakeholders generously replied to the 2015 Request for Information (RFI), regarding future directions of NLM.  Input provided in 2015 is already under consideration and need not be re-submitted. The 2015 RFI was issued by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), on behalf of the NLM Working Group of the Advisory Committee to the NIH Director (ACD), in order to obtain input for their June, 2015 report. That document produced a vision for the future of NLM, in the context of NLM’s leadership transition and emerging NIH data science priorities.  The current RFI is issued to obtain public input on goals and priorities for NLM’s next strategic plan.

Complete details of the current RFI to inform the Strategic Plan for the National Library of Medicine are available here. Any questions may be directed to Dr. Stephen J. Greenberg (Coordinator of Public Services, History of Medicine Division at the National Library of Medicine), at (301) 827-4577 or stephen.greenberg@nih.gov
