NASS, in conjunction with the University of Alberta’s Centre for Health Evidence (CHE), developed an online, interactive educational program based on content from the Users’ Guides to the Medical Literature. In 2012, the University collaborated with CHE to form a new university-affiliated social enterprise called Qwogo, Inc. The transition to Qwogo hosting was complete in January 2013 and they continue to support clients under this new organizational framework.
This online, self-directed training program covers the basics of evidence-based medicine and evidence-analysis. The course is designed to help practitioners improve their ability to find, appraise and use evidence appearing in the health sciences literature. Critical appraisal is explored within an “Evidence-Based Practice” conceptual framework where the focus is on whether and how evidence should change health practices. Completion of the online program takes 10-30 hours (depending on how quickly you move through the modules) and up to 30 hours of CME credit will be awarded upon completion. Registered participants will have six months to complete the online program. If you have questions about the online EBM training program, please contact Karen James, Manager of Research.
