About this course

Interpret medical literature through the principles of evidence-based medicine and apply them in clinical practice.
 
Learn how to interpret medical literature to make guided patient care decisions
On this course, you will learn how to apply the key principles of evidence-based medicine in practice. You will explore the basic applications of p-values, power and statistical tests that are typically found in medical literature. You will discover how to interpret number-needed-to-treat, number-needed-to-harm and noninferiority studies through medical literature examples.
You will also understand and review the pros and cons of clinical practice guidelines and decipher the appropriate application of these guidelines in practice.
 
What topics will you cover?
Week 1 - Learn the most common statistical tests used in medical literature.
Week 2 - Be able to define, calculate, interpret, and describe the appropriate use of number needed to treat (NNT) and number needed to harm (NNH) in clinical trials.
Week 3 - List the potential outcomes for a noninferiority compared to a superiority study.
Week 4 - Describe the purpose of clinical practice guidelines with regards to how it should be used in clinical practice.
Week 5 - Explore the process of PICO structure in a clinical trial.
Week 6 - Learn the principles of Evidence-Based Medicine(EBM) in clinical settings.
