Evidence Based Medicine Course

Why you should attend the Evidence Based Medicine Course

October 19-20, 2019
Barcelona, Spain

The UEG Evidence Based Medicine Course was held on the occasion of UEG Week Barcelona 2019. The meeting’s 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.

Learning objectives:

  • Formulate clinical questions and make them answerable in a scientific way
  • Search for and select relevant literature for scrutinising and critical appraisal
  • Learn how to critically appraise different types of study design, and decide whether or not to incorporate the findings into your own clinical practice
  • Recognise the leaking pipeline of evidence and explain barriers to transfer evidence in clinical practice
  • Name and explain basic principles in adult learning theories in context of EBM teaching

Target audience:

  • Clinicians in gastroenterology of all ages, from all career levels
  • Preferably past participants of UEG’s Young Investigators Meeting and/or Summer School
