The goal of the session is to help librarians solidify and expand their own evidence based practice skills. It will cover 1) Why evidence based practice is important, 2) How to interpret core statistical measures and figures and 3) How to critically appraise cohort studies, randomized controlled trials, and systematic reviews. Attendees will have the chance to work in small groups to critically appraise example articles and practice what they have learned.
