Slide6 www.cebm.netThe aim of this session 1. To understand what is EBP 2. To recognize questions 3. To develop focussed clinical questions
Slide7 www.cebm.netWhat is Evidence-Based Medicine? “ Evidence-based medicine is the integration of best research evidence with clinical expertise and patient values”
Slide8 www.cebm.net“Just in Time” learning The EBM Alternative Approach “Just in Time” learning The EBM Alternative Approach • Shift focus to current patient problems (“just in time” education) • Relevant to YOUR practice • Memorable • Up to date • Learn to obtain best current answers Dave Sackett
Slide11 www.cebm.netWould any of you have agreed to participate in a placebo controlled trial of prophylactic antibiotics for colorectal surgery after 1975?
Slide12 www.cebm.netReduction of perioperative deaths by antibiotic prophylaxis for colorectal surgery
Slide13 www.cebm.netWould you ever have put babies to sleep on their tummies?
Slide16www.cebm.netWhy do we need RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIALS ? In the early 1980s newly introduced antiarrhythmics were found to be highly successful at suppressing arrhythmias. Not until a RCT was performed was it realized that, although these drugs suppressed arrhythmias, they actually increased mortality. The CAST trial revealed Excess mortality of 56/1000. By the time the results of this trial were published, at least 100,000 such patients had been taking these drugs.
Slide19What does CEBM do?
Slide24 www.cebm.netThe 5 steps of EBM 1. Formulate an answerable question 2. Track down the best evidence 3. Critically appraise the evidence for validity, clinical relevance and applicability 4. Individualize, based clinical expertise and patient concerns 5. Evaluate your own performance
Slide25 www.cebm.netGetting Evidence in to Practice How do you “do” EBP? • What Evidence based practice do you do/help with? • What other EBP do you know of?
Slide26 www.cebm.netJASPA* (Journal associated score of personal angst) J: Are you ambivalent about renewing your JOURNAL s ubscriptions? A: Do you feel ANGER towards prolific authors? S: Do you ever use journals to help you SLEEP ? P: Are you surrounded by PILES of PERIODICALS ? A: Do you feel ANXIOUS when journals arrive? YOUR SCORE? (0 TO 5) * Modified from: BMJ 1995;311:1666-1668 0 (?liar) 1-3 (normal range) >3 (sick; at risk for polythenia gravis and related conditions)

Slide29 www.cebm.netHow many randomized trials are published each year
Slide30 www.cebm.netChanges in the past 12 months A Survey of 43 EBM practitioners at 2009 EBM practice workshop
Slide31 www.cebm.netBut we are (currently) poorly equipped to tell good from bad research • BMJ study of 607 reviewers • 14 deliberate errors inserted • Detection rates • On average <3 of 9 major errors detected • Poor Randomisation (by name or day) - 47% • Not intention-to-treat analysis - 22% • Poor response rate - 41% Schroter S et al, accepted for Clinical Trials
Slide32 www.cebm.netManaging Information “Push” and “Pull” methods • “ Push ” - alerts us to new information • “Just in Case” learning • Use ONLY for important, new, valid research • “ Pull ” – access information when needed • “Just in Time” learning • Use whenever questions arise • EBM Steps: Question; search; appraise; apply
Slide33 www.cebm.netYour Clinical Questions • Write down one recent patient problem • What was the critical question? • Did you answer it? If so, how?
Slide34 www.cebm.net: Asking well-formulated questions In your books
Slide35 www.cebm.netAngela is a new patient who recently moved to the area to be closer to her son and his family She is 69 years old and has a history of congestive heart failure brought on by a recent myocardial infarctions. She has been hospitalized twice within the last 6 months for worsening of heart failure and has a venous leg ulcer. At the present time she reports she is extremely diligent about taking her medications (lisinopril and aspirin) and wants desperately to stay out of the hospital. She is mobile and lives alone with several cats but reports sometimes she forgets certain things. She also tells you she is a bit hard of hearing, has a slight cough, is an ex- smoker of 20 cigs a day for 40 years. Her BP today is 170/90, her ankles are slightly swollen and her ulcer is painful and her pulse is 80 and slightly irregular . What are your questions?
Slide36 www.cebm.net‘Background’ Questions • About the disorder, test, treatment, etc. 2 components: a. Root* + Verb : “What causes …” b. Condition: “… SARS?” • * Who, What, Where, When, Why, How
Slide37 www.cebm.net‘Foreground’ Questions • About patient care decisions and actions 4 (or 3) components: a. P atient, problem, or population b. I ntervention, exposure, or maneuver c. C omparison (if relevant) d. Clinical O utcomes (including time horizon)
Slide38 www.cebm.netBackground & Foreground
Slide44About patient care decisions and actions• 4 (or 3) components: • a. In P atients with Bell ’ s Palsy • b. Do ( I ) corticosteroids • c. C ompared to placebo • d. Improve facial function ( O ) at 3 months ‘ Foreground ’ Questions
Slide47 www.cebm.netwww.cebm.net For every 100 people with Bell ’ s palsy at 3 months • 83 in the corticosteroid group will have recovered facial function • 64 in the placebo group will have recovered facial function • Risk difference = 19% • Relative Risk Reduction = 23% • Number Needed to Treat = 6 Does this intervention help? o
Slide48 www.cebm.netExample 1 Jean is a 55 year old woman who quite often crosses the Atlantic to visit her elderly mother. She tends to get swollen legs on these flights and is worried about her risk of developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT), because she has read quite a bit about this in the newspapers lately. She asks you if she would wear elastic stockings on her next trip to reduce her risk of this. P I C O
Slide49 www.cebm.netExample 2 Jeff, a smoker of more than 30 years, has come to see you about something unrelated . You ask him if he is interested in stopping smoking. He tells you he has tried to quit smoking unsuccessfully in the past. A friend if his , however, successfully quit with acupuncture. Should he try it? Other interventions you know about are nicotine replacement therapy and antidepressants P I C O
Slide50 www.cebm.netExample 3 At a routine immunisation visit, Lisa, the mother of a six-month-old tells you that her baby suffered a nasty local reaction after her previous immunisation. Lisa is very concerned that the same thing may happen again this time. Recently, a colleague told you that needle length can affect local reactions to immunisation in young children but you can’t remember the precise details P I C O
Slide53 www.cebm.netExample 4 Susan is expecting her first baby in two months. She has been reading about the potential benefits and harms of giving newborn babies vitamin K injections. She is alarmed by reports that vitamin K injections in newborn babies may cause childhood leukaemia. She asks you if this is true and, if so, what the risk for her baby will be. P I C O Aetiology and risk factors
Slide54 www.cebm.netExample 5 Julie is pregnant for the second time. She had her first baby when she was 33 and had amniocentesis to find out if the baby had Down Syndrome. The test was negative but it was not a good experience, because she did not get the result until she was 18 weeks pregnant. She is now 35 and 1 month pregnant, and asks if she can have a test that would give her an earlier result. The local hospital offers serum biochemistry plus nuchal translucency ultrasound screening as a first trimester test for Down syndrome. You winder if this combination of tests is as reliable as a conventional amniocentesis
Slide55 www.cebm.netExample 6 Mr Thomas, who is 58 years old, has correctly diagnosed his inguinal lump as a hernia. He visits you for confirmation of his diagnosis and information about the consequences. You mention the possibility of strangulation, and the man asks ‘How likely is that?’ You reply ‘pretty unlikely’ (which is as much as you know at the time) but say that you will try to find out more precisely.
