Workshop: Evidence Based Practice: A Refresher for Librarians Jonathan Koffel, Clinical Information Librarian at the UMN Bio-Medical Library, will be presenting Evidence Based Practice: A Refresher for Librarians. The goal of the session is to help librarians solidify and expand their own evidence based practice skills. The session will cover why evidence based practice is important, how to interpret core statistical measures and figures and how to critically appraise cohort studies, randomized controlled trials, and systematic reviews. Attendees will have the chance to work in small groups to critically appraise example articles and practice what they have learned.
The HSLM Annual Meeting will be held in the afternoon. Beverages, a light continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.
