Overview

FAST EVIDENCE is a half‐day, interactive course that teaches physicians how to conduct effective internet searches in order to find credible and evidence‐based medical information from a variety of databases and other credible online sources. Designed for a small group of up to 12 learners, the course is facilitated by two CPSBC Librarians who provide learners with hands‐on learning support in a computer lab setting. To support ongoing learning and application, this program incorporates post-program activities, including check-in and coaching sessions following the live workshop.
