Practicing evidence healthcare is seen by many health care professionals as a difficult task. This is especially true for busy Primary care workers and Family physicians. The presence of several ‘user-friendly’ resources has made this mission a lot easier than many would think

Workshop objectives:

  • To help attendees practically learn how to formulate answerable questions (EBM Step 1)
  • To introduce attendees to techniques of searching evidence based resources (EBM step2). User friendly evidence based data-bases will be introduced
  • To help clarify some statistical terms used in medical literature (such as Relative risk, Absolute risk, confidence Intervals, Likelihood Ratios..etc)
