In-Person Paramedic Evidence Based Practice Course
Course Goals:
The goals of the Paramedic Evidence-based Practice (P-EBP) course are to provide the tricks and tools needed to efficiently search and appraise the research literature and apply to practice.
Course Overview:
Participants will develop a clinical query that is of interest to them, conduct a literature search, pick a few key articles and perform a step-wise critique. The course is composed of a series of components, each of which include a lecture and/or large group exercise, followed by a worksheet and individual work, with the aid of course facilitators. Participants will be asked to come to the course prepared with a clinical topic they could like to focus on. To complete the course, participants will compose a Critically Appraised Topic (CAT), to be submitted within two weeks of the course date.
Format:

This course is taught in a classroom at one of our local facilities or a facility of a requesting service. We have a 4/1 student to facilitator ratio to ensure optimized interaction. The day consists of 8.5 hours of presentations, group work, 1 on 1 instruction, a live group PubMed search and concludes with the students presenting their findings to the rest of the group

This course has been taught on-site in Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland, New Brunswick, and Ontario. Depending on facilitator availability we are able to travel, at cost recovery pricing, to your service.
