Good Practice Day: Evidence Based Medicine

3rd November, 2016

National Metalforming Centre, West Bromwich

The topic for this Good Practice Day will be Evidence-based Medicine.  

In a series of presentations and interactive exercises, members of the KCMO team will be taking participants through the processes of:

  • finding and assessing the available evidence
  • determining the most relevant evidence and evidence summaries to answer a given clinical question
  • calculating and communicating risks: absolute and relative risks, numbers needed to treat or harm

Jonathan Underhill will discuss the evidence about how people make decisions and how this influences our care of patients, and Stephen Chapman will describe how evidence can be used and mis-used in the promotion of medicinal products, in a talk illustrated with examples of ABPI breaches.

The day will close with an action planning session.

This is a free event for healthcare professionals associated with CCGs subscribing to the Keele Prescribing Support Service.  These CCGs are Birmingham Cross City, Birmingham South Central, Dudley, Herefordshire, Sandwell and West Birmingham, Shropshire, Solihull, Walsall and Wolverhampton.
