Using Evidence To Improve Care

Care at the Close of Life: offers evidence-based and clinical expert guidance on caring for patients with life-limiting illness, incorporating the words and perspectives of affected patients, their families, and treating clinicians.
JAMAevidence offers a robust library of PowerPoint slide sets aimed at instruction and learning of EBM concepts. They are linked to related content and are available through search. Sample Education Guides from Users' Guides to the Medical Literature ( Online slideshow | PowerPoint download) and The Rational Clinical Examination (Online slideshow | PowerPoint download) and Care at the Close of Life: Evidence and Experience (PowerPoint download) are available for free.
More than 500 EBM terms and definitions with terms linked to pop-up definitions inside book content and available via search.
Calculators are functional, interactive tools designed to enhance the user's understanding of statistical and mathematical relationships in EBM.
Worksheets are interactive applications that provide users with a framework for studying EBM concepts. They are comprised of textual instructions as well as open, editable fields where learners can respond to instructions and prompts. Two types of worksheets are available on JAMAevidence:
Critical appraisal forms help users learn to evaluate research findings by considering validity, importance, and applicability of results.
Information cycle forms allow users to explore the "5 As" of EBM practice: Assess the information, Ask specific questions, Acquire evidence, Appraise the data for validity, Apply evidence to patient care.
Question wizards formulate a well-built clinical question. Questions of therapy yield to the "PICO" format: Patient/Population, Intervention, Comparison, Outcome.
My JAMAevidence provides users with quick access to their most recent saved content: worksheets, questions, bookmarks, images, and tables.
