An EIDM journey: Help is out there! An EIDM journey: Help is out there! Presentation Transcript

  • An EIDM Journey Help is out there!
  • Presenters Today
    • Megan Ward, MD MHSc CCFP FRCP(C): Associate Medical Officer of Health, Peel Public Health
    • Bev Bryant, BScN, Med: Manager Education and Research, Peel Public Health
    • Lori Greco, MHSc: Knowledge Broker,
    • Jessie McGowan, PhD : Health and Library Consultant, Toronto; Adjunct Professor, Departments of Medicine and Family Medicine, University of Ottawa; Associate Editor, Journal of Clinical Epidemiology
  • Peel Public Health
    • 1.3 million population
    • Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon
    • 624 FTE
    • Annual growth of 30,000
    • Ethnically diverse
  • Vision:
    • Broad application of EIDM processes among Peel Public Health staff at all levels over the next ten years, resulting in the systematic inclusion of research evidence into decision making.
    • Striding into Dr Mowat ’s Office!
    • Peel Public Health reports are a MUST read!
  • CHSRF Survey
    • Library services lacking profoundly
    • Time/skill to follow an evidence informed process
    • Question formulation, search, critical appraisal skills, synthesis and applicability
    • No consistent requirement for use of evidence
  • But:
    • Strong support from Senior Management
    • Strategic priority
  • Missing Components
    • Library services, especially reference
    • Access to and knowledge of high quality information, especially pre-processed and pre-appraised
    • Building workforce capacity and skill
    • Process of bringing evidence to practice questions
  • For Today
    • Our focus is on the first two
      • with a taste of training!
  • Library Needs assessment
    • Lack of access to information
      • Databases
      • On line and print journals
      • Search expertise
      • Low reference service capacity
    • Lack of skills
    • “ Work-Arounds”
    • Low use
  • But, there was some awareness:
    • Preference and value pre-processed and pre-appraised literature
    • Value of evidence-based philosophies
    • Demand for more training
  • Two years later: Library
    • Two reference librarians
    • Appropriate databases and access
    • Improved web-presence
    • High demand for service
    • Beginning ‘PUSH’ activities
    • Library as knowledge hub
  • Two (or more) Years Later: EIDM
    • Staff to critical appraisal training
    • Process for ‘rapid review’ of the evidence
    • Increasing access to pre-processed and pre-appraised sites
  • One of the helpers along the way:
  • Pre-processed literature
    • Examples:
    • Guidelines
    • Policy briefs
    • Overviews
    • Systematic reviews
    Pre-processed DiCenso, Bayley, & Haynes, 2009 Synopses of single studies Single studies Syntheses Synopses of syntheses Summaries Systems
  • Synthesized Research
    • Value:
    • Summarize the existing best information to give a picture of what is currently known
    • Saves time of reading individual studies
    • More reliable results than individual studies
    • Respond to a large scope of questions to provide guidance in practice
    • Work has been done for you!
  • Methods
    • Rigorous scientific methods:
    • Develop question
    • Identify criteria for included studies
    • Search for literature
    • Apply inclusion, quality criteria
    • Analytic synthesis of findings
    • Draw conclusions
    • Practice implications (guidelines, policy briefs)
    • Maureen Dobbins
