2013 Institute


Tuesday August 6 – Friday August 9, 2013
University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Canada


After five successful years at Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH, Supporting Clinical Care: An Institute in Evidence-Based Practice for Medical Librarians is excited to announce that for 2013 it is moving west (and north!) to beautiful Calgary, Alberta, Canada and the University of Calgary’s brand new Taylor Family Digital Library.

We are very excited to bring the Institute west this year and can’t think of a more perfect location than Calgary.

Priority registration will still be offered to those on the waiting list.  

The 2014 Institute will be held in Denver.  Find the webpage at


Institute Description

This is an intensive, introductory, 3 day course. Through discussion and hands-on learning, you'll acquire skills needed to support evidence-based practice. We use an active, case-based approach in a comfortable, small-group environment. A hallmark of this institute is the low student-faculty ratio and the individual attention each participant receives.


Medical librarians who want to learn evidence-based clinical practice concepts in order to comfortably support and teach EBCP at their institutions. Attendance will be limited to 32 participants to maximize individual learning.

Learning Objectives

After completing the institute, you will be able to:

  • 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 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.

Continuing Education Credit

20.0 MLA CE credits pending.

Comments from previous Institute attendees

"This is the best thing I've done for myself as a medical librarian."

"I really appreciate the opportunity to interact and learn from those who were experienced with EBM. I learned a lot and feel as if I have a handle on the topic."

"Small groups are the ideal situation - can be actively engaged with increasingly familiar faces - very productive."

"Excellent workshop. Great way to learn by immersion for 3 days with colleagues."
