Embase Sunrise Seminar & Breakfast

Librarian Roles in Teaching Evidence-Based Medicine
 

The practice of evidence-based medicine (EBM) requires retrieving the knowledge from ever-increasing volume of literature. Librarians have supported EBM by offering information searching skills and various tailored training programs.

 

While users’ needs constantly drive library’s teaching activities, customizable EBM teaching modules have been developed to respond to different needs of library's constituencies, particularly the policy makers within a university’s healthcare system. This involvement creates a new avenue to convey library’s value.

 

Embase Sunrise Seminar provides you a platform to learn the new perspectives of EBM teaching modules and to share your best practices of teaching EBM with your fellow librarians.
