"Best Evidence" Courses
Spend a whole day or half a day with the Therapeutics Initiative's team and learn more about the latest evidence on the most relevant topics.
Often delivered by prestigious visiting speakers from around the world and hosted by the Therapeutics Initiative at the UBC Point Grey Campus in Vancouver, BC, these are academic-based, drug therapy oriented sessions aimed at faculty, students, practicing physicians, pharmacists, nurses and any other clinicians or researchers interested in patient drug therapy from an evidence-based perspective. The seminars provide a forum for the TI community to explore hot topics related to evidence-based drug therapy.
Podcasts are an exciting new way of disseminating educational content. You can listen on line or you can subscribe in iTunes to have each new episode delivered to your iPod/iPhone. The Therapeutics Initiative Podcast covers topics from the Therapeutics Letter or other topics we are currently working on presents them in an entertaining, user-friendly podcast format.
While unfortunately there aren't many good podcasts providing information on drug therapy from an evidence-based perspective, below are links to a few of the podcasts we like to listen to and which we would recommend to our users:
infoPOEMS: POEM of the Week Podcast: From Essential Evidence Plus. Each week Dr. Mark Ebell, POEMs Editor, joins Dr. Michael Wilkes, NPR correspondent and Vice-Dean of the UC-Davis Medical School, for a five minute discussion about an important recent POEM. The discussion provides additional depth and insight into the issue covered by the POEM synopsis.
Therapeutics Education Collaboration Podcast: Weekly podcast presented by James McCormack and Michael Allan aimed at family physicians, pharmacists and other practitioners but the content may also appeal to interested patients. Promotes healthy skepticism and critical thinking and most of the podcasts are presented in a case-based approach with humour injected into the process to make the learning more interesting.
