We invite you to join us for the upcoming webinar:

Information Mastery:  Evidence-Based Medicine in the Real World

David Slawson, MD

Tuesday, December 4 at 1:00 PM

Staying on top of the latest research is an important part of clinical practice.  However, it is important to understand how to efficiently find and evaluate new research, properly relate it to individual patients, and know when to apply it to daily practice.  Dr. Slawson is one of the leading experts in critical evaluation of research.  Our clinicians here at UVA have found Dr. Slawson's unique, straightforward approach to this subject to be very useful and inspiring.  We look forward to sharing his expertise with our audience.

Learning Objectives:  The participant will be able to:
1) Identify an active approach for "informed consumers" to master relevant health information

2) Apply the usefulness equation as a guide to managing new medical information

3) Distinguish between patient-oriented and disease-oriented evidence

4)  Describe the importance of using both a hunting and foraging tool to stay up-to-date with clinical evidence
