Workshop Members

Biomedical Research Station 2F Seminor room 201

This Workshop is designed for researchers in Medicine!

It can sometimes be difficult to quickly identify relevant and high quality literature in a short period of time while searching large medical databases, and EBMR can help with an effective search.
EBMR (Evidence Based Medicine Reviews) is designed to help health care workers support ‘evidence-based medicine’.
Search methods and results management training will be introduced to help hospital staff understand how to effectively use MEDLINE+EBM Review (Cochrane Library) in literature searches.
