Pediatric Residents: EBM Review and Practice

Provides specialty based search examples for practicing the EBM steps related to asking clinical questions and acquiring evidence.

Learning Objectives

Asking Clinical Questions is intended to help you develop your evidence-based medicine (EBM) skills. The goal is to increase your comfort and ability to ask patient care related questions and efficiently find evidence to incorporate into patient management. Like many skills in medicine, EBM takes practice to master.

This module provides a brief review of the definition and process of evidence-based medicine. The primary focus is to guide your practice of turning clinical questions into database searches and selecting the best available evidence from the results to critically appraise and apply.
