Jump into Evidence Based Practice

Lifeguard Librarian on Duty

Course Information

This free online course has been created for Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants practicing in North Dakota and the surrounding region. Although evidence based practice (EBP) is a core component of best practice across medical fields, it can be difficult for practitioners to gain the skills necessary to access, appraise, and integrate current evidence into their day-to-day clinical practice. In this course, medical librarians from the University of North Dakota School of Medicine & Health Sciences will address this need with lecture, discussion, and hands-on activities. Attendees will develop skills in carrying out the steps of EBP, from writing a clinical question to appraising and applying the best evidence to patient care, all within an occupational therapy context.

WHEN: April 23 & April 30, 2019 from noon to 1:00 pm (CT)
