How often do you use evidence to aid your decision-making process?
Integrating evidence based veterinary medicine (EBVM) and research into clinical practice, can have enormous benefits for our patients and practices, enabling greater standards of care and improved outcomes through supporting decision making with tangible evidence.
In these two presentations, Dr Lindsay Evans discusses the principles of evidence-based medicine and research, including the Ask, Acquire, Appraise, Apply and Assess process. As well as the evidence based veterinary medicine methodology, she will discuss the benefits of using these frameworks, and the best ways to integrate these strategies into practice, so we can embrace the science of veterinary science in a relevant and useful way for day to day practice, while retaining the focus on the individual needs of the patients we are treating.
As well as looking at the theory behind why we should encourage evidence based veterinary medicine, Lindsay will discuss the challenges in accessing and integrating this information, as well as strategies and tools that can be used to make the implementation of evidence based medicine practical, accessible and streamlined across all areas of the veterinary practice.
