Understanding the “Evidence” in Evidence-Based Medicine and Evidence-Based Practice: Library Grand Rounds, May 8, 2012

When:  Tuesday May 8, 2012 from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Where:  DHMC Auditorium E

The Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center has a strong commitment to evidence-based care. But what is the “evidence” in evidence-based medicine? How do we find it? Which evidence is best? How is accessing evidence at the bedside different from creating evidence-based clinical procedures?
