How to Teach Evidence-Based Medicine
Every doctor needs to be able to critically appraise the latest research evidence as it applies to individual patient encounters, so help your learners recognize the factors involved in practicing evidence-based medicine. These factors include patient preferences, the unique clinical circumstances of the patient encounter, your own clinical experience and expertise, as well as current research evidence.
Teach your learners to seek out valid and relevant articles when they have a clinical question. Share the resources that you commonly use to find the latest research evidence. And don’t make assumption that your learner knows how to evaluate a research article for relevance to the case at hand. Lastly, explain which statistics are relevant when evaluating research, such as Relative Risk Reduction (RRR).
