New Evidence-Based Knowledge Portal

"The Evidence Based Knowledge Portal, developed by the Eskind Biomedical Library at Vanderbilt with grant funding (NLM grant number 5R01LM007849), includes tutorials addressing facets of statistical analysis and critiquing the medical literature as
well as virtual practice cases that allow users to explore principles of EBM (e.g. number needed to treat, selection bias) in the context of a clinical scenario. Cases include pre-and post- tests to allow users to gauge their knowledge and progress."

You will need to do a very quick registration in order to obtain a free password and you will also need to download Macromedia flash player if you don't already have it. This is a very user friendly tutorial resource that demystifies lots of research concepts such as the advantages and disadvantages of cohort studies and positive and negative predictive values. The virtual practice cases allow you to utilize and reinforce some of your new principles of research. In addition, this portal offers
a Evidence Summary Generator which allows you to create summaries of articles and evidence in a template format.

The Evidence Based Knowledge Portal at Vanderbilt University welcomes your comments/suggestions
