Course Description and Learning Objectives

New evidence is continually emerging and being able to assess whether a new treatment makes sense for the patient in front of you can be challenging. This CFPC accredited 2-hour online webinar uses a case-based approach to review key Critical Appraisal topics in a practical way. There will be a review of recent evidence about treating COPD, and attendees can expect to:

  1. Improve ability to define the question they wish to answer with review of evidence
  2. Locate the best available evidence and determine how a particular systematic review or trial applies to the case they are considering
  3. Describe what a reasonable estimate of benefit and harm might be for the patient they are considering
  4. Understand how shared decision making for this case fits in with disease specific guidelines.
  5. Build a library of trusted resources for ongoing use of evidence in shared decision making
