Slide1Finding articles quickly:Teaching tips Teaching Evidence Based Medicine 3 rd  September 2012 Nia Wyn Roberts & Owen Coxall Bodleian Health Care Libraries

Slide2This is NOT asearching workshop

Slide3Finding information about Oxford

Slide5Why do this?• Starts off with a question everyone can answer? – Non-threatening, encourages people to participate • Learning point – Illustrates there are lots of different sources of information • Other examples – Going on holiday, buying a car, getting a new pet…

Slide6Finding clinical information

Slide8Why do this?• Gives you an idea of their current knowledge? • Gives an indication of the variety of resources available • Gives an opportunity to point out the pros / cons of different resources • If no one mentions Google – you need to work harder

Slide9Clinical scenario• Real clinical cases – From clinical rounds / consultations – Journal clubs – Online video clips • News stories – Newspapers, news web-sites – Blogs – Journal web-sites – In the news

Slide11PICOPatient / Population / Problem Intervention / Exposure Comparison Outcome Hypertension Blood pressure Cocoa Chocolate Flavanoid* N/A Reduce Reducing Reduction Lower Lowering

Slide12Why do this?• Get people to think of searching as related to patient care • Make searching relevant to day to day work • Less threatening than starting off asking people to think of their own questions

Slide13Search off

Slide151.UpToDate (Sub)  http://www.uptodate.com 2. TRIP  http://www.tripdatabase.com 3. PubMed Clinical Queries http://www.pubmed.gov 4. Cochrane Library http://www.thecochranelibrary.com 5.

Clinical Evidence (Sub) http://clinicalevidence.bmj.com/x/index.html 10. EBM Journal (Sub)  http://ebm.bmj.com/

Slide16Why run a search off?• Get people out of the habit of using only 1 or 2 resources • Opportunity to discuss pros / cons of different resources • Introduce participants to point of care search tools e.g. research synopses & evidence syntheses

Slide17Teach yourself PubMed• Finding the Evidence videos http://www.cebm.net/index.aspx?o=1038 • PubMed tutorials – Full tutorial – Quick tours for individual tasks http://www.nlm.nih.gov/bsd/disted/pubmed.html

Slide18Why do this?• Allows you to teach a mixed group using a blended learning approach • Ideal for distance learning • Self-paced learning allows participants to focus on what they want to know • Introduce participants to resources they can use after the session to help them with searching
