Designed for all health care professionals, who have some knowledge of critical appraisal and experience in practicing evidence-based health care, and who want to explore issues around teaching.

Teaching Evidence-Based Medicine is designed for all health care professionals, who have some knowledge of critical appraisal and experience in practicing evidence-based health care, and who want to explore issues around teaching. Students will learn in small groups and be facilitated to practice and develop their skills in teaching evidence-based practice. Participants will also learn educational strategies to develop a curriculum and design evaluation.

You should consider attending if you:

  • Are committed to patient-centred learning
  • Believe in the process of small-group learning
  • Take an active role in small group learning

This offers access to four full days of teaching by world renowned experts in evidence-based health care at the University of Oxford, but excludes the academic assignment offered to students on award-bearing programmes of study.  A Certificate of Completion is issued at the end of the course.

By the end of this module you will have learned how to:

  • Formulate clear answerable questions and teach on this subject
  • Understand search strategies and be familiar with different resources
  • Teach an aspect of critical appraisal effectively and with confidence
  • Understand the range of study designs and appraisals techniques required to teach evidence-based health care
  • Teach an aspect of biostatistics in health care
  • Understand the components of an effective curriculum for evidence-based practice 

There will be two main themes running throughout the workshop:

  1. Teaching will be addressed through the exploration of different educational models for teaching evidence-based practice and identification and discussion of issues of pedagogy, curriculum design development and maintenance. The aim will be to promote the teaching of evidence-based health care at your home institution
  2. Personal Development will be addressed by offering guidance and help in extending and advancing participants’ existing critical appraisal and teaching skills.
