Evidence-Based Clinical Practice & Shared Decision Making in Family Medicine Course – 27 April 2019

This course educational goal is to intensify the flow of knowledge from academic research to clinical practice. Combining interdisciplinary clinical cases with questions of diagnosis and therapy, the course programme tackles the range of questions that occur when searching for information that allows one to base clinical practice on scientific evidence. During this highly interactive course, short faculty lectures alternate with group work in small teams and inclusive discussions.

This one day course aims to develop evidence-based decision making in clinical practice through different interactive teaching and learning methods so family physicians can maintain the standards of evidence-based clinical practice.

Learning Objectives: At the end of the course it is expected family physicians:

  • Formulate an answerable clinical question
  • Search the evidence quickly and efficiently
  • Critically appraise the studies (systematic reviews, clinical practice guidelines, diagnostic studies)
  • Consider applying evidence in their practice
