Revised Evidence Based Practice Research Guide is Available

We revised our Evidence Based Practice Research Guide. View it at: http://campusguides.lib.utah.edu/ebp

Evidence Based Practice (EBP) combines the best research evidence, clinical expertise, and the patient values and preferences.

The revised EBP research guide will lead you through the 6 steps of the EBP process: Assess, Ask, Acquire, Appraise, Apply, & Assess. Within each step, the guide outlines essential library resources.

Please provide us feedback at: http://utah.libsurveys.com/EBP-v2

Did you know? We provide both classroom instruction and one-on-one consultations on EBP and other topics. Simply contact our team: https://library.med.utah.edu/ask

Is your research true? Is it reproducible? Is it replicable? Do you have an adequate sample size? Are your results credible? Is your reporting of results transparent and accurate?

Grand Rounds: Research Reproducibility continues into November and December as our weekly discussion series continues to bring awareness to a variety of research reproducibility issues. 

A schedule of speakers, and videos of past talks, are at: http://campusguides.lib.utah.edu/UtahRR18/GRRR

Who can judge this competition?

Additionally, all judges are invited to attend the red-carpet Capstone event on Thursday, November 16, 5-7pm.

Who do I contact?
Become a judge by contacting Anita at Anita.Leopardi@health.utah.edu

What is Healthi4U?
Healthi4U is an annual competition for interdisciplinary teams of students at the University of Utah to create short health-related videos.
