Does anyone have experience in trying to assess what EBM is taught in
We are considering a survey and would like to know what has been done
The sorts of areas we are considering are:
1. Who is involved in teaching EBM (librarians, statisticians, clinicians, ...)
2. What elements are explicitly taught in the curriculum
a. question recognition and formulation
b. searching skills
c. critical appraisal of
d. application to individual patients
3. What is the total face-to-face contact time spent on the above elements,
either in lectures or tutorials?
4. Do students present a "critically appraised topic*" during the course?
If so, how many times?
All suggestions welcome!
