Description: The implementation of evidence based practice (EBP) requires acquisition and use of a complex set of skills, including: the ability to locate and critically evaluate clinically relevant research literature: the ability to clearly formulate PICO elements from research questions; the ability to clearly understand how systematic reviews are developed and applied to inform health policy formulation. Speakers will be required to provide an overview of the role of the health sciences librarian in evidence based medicine practices such as developing systematic reviews and health policy briefs.

Paper may focus on:

  • The role of Librarians in implementing Evidence Based Medicine
  • Evolving role of information scientists in systematic reviews development
  • Capacity building to practitioners in implementing evidence based practice for effective health care service delivery
  • Knowledge attitude and perceived barriers for evidence practice for ¬†quality health care service provision
