How to run an evidence-based structured journal club to optimise clinical practice

Workshop Presenters: Dr Rachel Wenke, Professor Sharon Mickan

Date: Monday 9 August

Time: 1500 – 1630

Journal clubs are a widely used tool to promote evidence-based practice (EBP) in allied health, however how they are conducted is not always based on what research and theory recommend. The following workshop will be designed for clinicians and managers who are either wanting to start a journal club in their clinical area or enhance an existing journal club(s). The workshop will present an evidence informed journal club format that can be tailored to address unique contexts of clinicians in order to address important clinical questions. Practical strategies of how to run the journal club format will also be discussed.
