  • From Finland. Nice summaries of methods, no outcomes?
  • Now, take a minute to answer these questions for yourself, working with the person sitting next to you.
  • Another automated option is BMJ Updates - a product of the Health Information Research Unit at McMaster. Here you can search for articles on a topic, or register for e-mail pushes on your specialty. Physicians who are in general practice or primary care, internal medicine or its subspecialties are invited to register their interests so that they can receive email alerts and searching access for literature that is matched to their personal clinical interests.
  • You can choose as many options as you want and they’re quite general.
  • You can change the frequency so you get them daily, every few days, or weekly. The contents are systematically screened for both relevance and newsworthiness and you can specify what level of each you’re interested in.
  • You can change the frequency so you get them daily, every few days, or weekly.
  • NEJM, Lancet, Annals of Internal Medicine, JAMA, BMJ

  • Coca = clinician outreach and communication activity
  • Point 3: quality of evidence, amount of content. Can usually get a trial, so test a couple out for some of your real-life situations. Point 4: Note – online isn’t always more current than paper. Eg. merck manual online is just as old as paper.
  • Sermo is like facebook for physicians and it’s not the only one. BUT Sermo's derives revenue from pharma companies that pay for streamlined access to the physicians in Sermo's community for market research studies. Our opinion of this kind of exploitation is relaxing somewhat – I personally am willing to give up some privacy for functionality eg. in facebook itself. But there is another option

  • Patients also face problems around critical evaluation of sources (boy, do they ever!) My favorite site: medline plus. From the states BUT there isn’t a great canadian alternative, unfortunately

  • LLL - Learning Objectives Learn to create and maintain a personal program to keep up to date and enhance professional competence Describe basic methods to critically evaluate new information sources Describe characteristics of high quality patient information and develop awareness of trusted sources
  • Practical methods for LLL Good current awareness programs are:  Efficient, preferably AUTOMATED • (SET it and FORGET it)  Focused on your highest priorities  Manageable (you can make time to read what arrives)
  • Current awareness programs First, develop goals:  e.g. Read everything by supervisor  e.g. Everything in the big 5 on my specialty
  • Your current awareness program  Second, develop activities to achieve those goals  Automated searches  TOC email updates from key journals  RSS feeds • News updates • Key blogs
  • Your current awareness program  Third, evaluate effectiveness  Too much? Too little? Bad/no results?  Adjust, then try again  (Ask a librarian for help or suggestions)
  • Thinking about Goals What news do I need to hear in order to do my current job properly? What news do I need to hear in order to keep up to date with my professional development? What am I passionately interested in knowing more about? (May have little or nothing to do with work, that’ s ok)
  • Ok, YOUR TURNWhat are your currentawareness GOAL(s) ?
  • Turn the Goal to ACTIVITY My NC BIExample: GOAL: Read everything new about hpv vaccines ACTIVITY: Pubmed automated search for any new articles on Gardasil/Cervarix/ HPV vaccine
  • Step 1. Run the search My NCBI
  • Step 2 Savesearch
  • Call it something meaningful
  • Change the frequency, dayof the week, format ofdelivery to suit yourpreferences

  • TOC alerts Get e-mail, RSS feeds, podcasts from the big 5 medical journals
  • TOC alerts Use the journal’s site or TicTOCs: http://www.tictocs.ac.uk/
  • RSS Feeds Can get from journal’s website, TicTocs Can also search for feed within Google Reader, Bloglines…

  • COCA conference calls
  • Twitter @CochraneCollab @CDCemergency @CDCgov @gersteinlibrary
  • Critical Evaluation of Sources More advertising, more wary! Statements of responsibility, credentials Quality of content, interface How current? Pop ups? Personal information collected?
  • Case Study: Sermo
  • Case Study: Sermo
  • What about your patients?
  • Be Picky when Picking Sources Pick professional sources for…. • Reliability (both content AND schedule) • Can it deliver in a set-and-forget mode? • Relevance to your learning GOALS Pick patient information sources for…  Quality – reflect latest/best knowledge  Readability (consider levels, language)  Usability/learning styles (Interactive? Print?)
  • Your questions?
