Identify and explain the concepts, issues and process of evidence-based clinical practice (EBCP). ? Recognize different types of study designs and understand their strengths and limitations. ? Create well-built, answerable clinical questions. ? Use clinical questions to find the best evidence in the literature about the diagnosis and treatment of disorders. ? Identify and explain the criteria for judging the internal validity of randomized controlled trials (RCTs), systematic reviews, qualitative and diagnostic studies. ? Identify roles that librarians can undertake in providing EBCP training and support to health care professionals.
