Evidence-Based Medicine

with 2 comments

I’m in Chicago teaching today, and one of the topics we touched on briefly was evidence-based medicine. As we were talking I realized that it’s one of those terms we sling around quite freely, but my hunch is that many people aren’t particularly clear what it really means. Lucky for us many medical libraries have put together online tutorials on the subject. The Norris Medical Library at the University of Southern California has a good one: easy to use and concisely presented. It’s also well-linked, which, if you’re wonky like me, will send you over the moon. Best of all, it’s free and doesn’t even require registration to use.

  1. I had trouble locating the specific online resource you mentioned. Can you help me navigate through the website to go directly to the source that you referenced?

  2. If I understand the question you’re asking, the direct link I reference is http://www.usc.edu/hsc/nml/lib-services/tutorials/ebm.html

    Please let me know if that wasn’t what you were looking for.
