The principles of evidence‐based medicine (EBM) provide clinicians with the ability to identify, source, appraise and integrate research evidence into medical decision making. Despite the mantra of EBM encouraging the use of evidence to inform practice, there appears little evidence available on how best to teach EBM to medical trainees. A systematic review was performed to identify what type of educational method is most effective at increasing medical trainees' competency in EBM. 

Topics from this paper

Evidence-Based Medicine in the Clinical Learning Environment of Pediatric Hospital Medicine.
TLDR
How the current clinical learning environment has shaped EBM, including the accessibility and portability of technology; the access to electronic search engines and libraries; and the movement toward applying the best evidence through order sets, clinical guidelines, and pathways to work toward standardizing care are discussed. Expand
The use of journal clubs to teach evidence‐based medicine to health professionals: A systematic review and meta‐analysis
TLDR
Journal clubs are an educational activity in which individuals meet to critique and discuss research articles to improve the content knowledge of health professionals. Expand
Teaching Evidence-Based Practice: Considerations for Dental Education.

TLDR
The evidence on educational approaches that may be beneficial when developing educational programs for both dental students and practicing dentists is reviewed. Expand
Completeness of the reporting of evidence‐based practice educational interventions: a review
Complete reporting of intervention details in trials of evidence‐based practice (EBP) educational interventions is essential to enable clinical educators to translate research evidence aboutExpand

IntroductionEvidence-based medicine (EBM) is an expectation of professional healthcare and a requisite component of medical school curricula. However, upon graduation medical students’ EBM skillsExpand
Missed opportunities in health care education evidence synthesis
TLDR
These examples are not in any way meant to represent a specific set of criticisms of this work, but, rather, are intended as exemplars of wider methodological issues that currently exist within much published material on the synthesis of evidence in health care education. Expand
Development of an Integrated Evidence-Based Medicine Curriculum Using a “Cascade” Model
Medical students need a practical grasp of the key concepts necessary to engage in evidence-based clinical practice, alongside ongoing opportunities for deliberate practice of these skills. WeExpand
Evidence-based medicine curricula and barriers for physicians in training: a scoping review
TLDR
Given the amount of time and resources needed to develop and implement an EBM curriculum, it is very important to follow the curriculum development steps and use validated assessment tools. Expand
A randomised controlled trial of a blended learning education intervention for teaching evidence-based medicine
TLDR
BL is no more effective than DL at increasing medical students’ knowledge and skills in EBM, but was significantly more effective at increasing student attitudes toward EBM and self-reported use of EBM in clinical practice. Expand
Evidence-based practice education for healthcare professions: an expert view
TLDR
Effectively embedding EBP throughout curricula requires further development, with a ‘real-world’ pragmatic approach that engenders dialogue and engagement with all stakeholders required. Expand

TLDR
EBP competency was shown to increase regardless of whether EBP is delivered to medical students at an undergraduate or post-graduate level, and further research incorporating highlevel methodologies is required to establish a clear recommendation on the research question. Expand

Is evidence‐based implementation of evidence‐based care possible?
TLDR
There was a median 10% improvement across studies, suggesting that it is possible to change healthcare provider behaviour and improve quality of care, and most dissemination and implementation strategies resulted in small to moderate improvements in care. Expand
Effect of a brief intervention on evidence-based medicine skills of pediatric residents
TLDR
A brief training module designed to teach core EBM skills including formulating answerable clinical questions, searching the evidence, critical appraisal skills including validity and applicability, and understanding levels of evidence and quantitative results for therapy articles was effective.
