3 3 Development ·Decided key competencies ·PICO ·Medical Subject Headings ·Subheadings ·Boolean Logic ·Limits ·Finding older literature ·Appropriate scenarios

4 4 Development ·Pre and post-tests ·5-question form ·Sought IRB approval ·Grading and evaluation ·Individual feedback ·Based on a template ·Data tracking ·Access and Excel files ·Reports generated after each block

5 5 Scheduling ·Clerkship director assigned students ·One classroom, 18 workstations ·Five blocks of 4-8 students, twice a week ·Make-up sessions built in ·Taught from ·Two librarians shared teaching duties ·Three-hour time period ·No students post-call (ideally)

6 6 Class ·Pre-test ·Why are you here? ·Older literature ·Evidence-based medicine overview ·Forming an answerable clinical question (PICO) ·Using Ovid MEDLINE to answer a PICO ·Choice of one of 10 exercises in-class ·Submit exercise for librarian review ·Post-test ·Workbook for students to keep

7 7 Results ·Taught 209 students ·Pre and post-test data ·Invaluable contact with students ·Verbal feedback ·Leverage in other curricula ·Model for other courses taught

8 8 Results: Pre and Post-Tests ·195 Pre-Tests ·Some prior knowledge of all competencies except PICO ·202 Post-Tests ·All students reported new or enhanced learning ·Suggested some overconfidence

9 MS3 Pre-Test Summaries (N=195) 0.51% 63.59% 46.67% 78.46% 56.41% 0.00% 10.00% 20.00% 30.00% 40.00% 50.00% 60.00% 70.00% 80.00% 90.00% % PICO Headings Subheadings Connectors Limits Competencies % Students Indicating Prior Knowledge

10 MS3 Post-Test Summaries (N=202) 99.50% 85.15% 92.08% 51.49% 79.21% 0.00% 10.00% 20.00% 30.00% 40.00% 50.00% 60.00% 70.00% 80.00% 90.00% % PICO Headings Subheadings Connectors Limits Competencies % of Students Learning or Learned More

15 15 Continuing Issues ·One shot nature ·Providing meaningful feedback ·Attention span ·Zipfs principle of least effort ·Some third years post-call anyway ·Instructor backup / availability ·Classroom use

16 16 Future Directions ·Teaching in 2 nd year 2004 and beyond ·Teaching 3 rd year ·Investigating 1 st year involvement ·Medical ethics course ·Investigating web component ·Basic searching tutorial ·Purchased software
