Australian Evidence Based Practice Librarians Institute 2022

THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL, but please email [email protected] to be placed on a waiting list.

We are delighted to announce that the Australian Evidence Based Practice Librarians’ Institute will return in 2022 for its 9th year. This year the Institute will be hosted by Deakin University at Waurn Ponds, in Geelong, Victoria.

This four-day residential program comprises an introduction to EBP, including research study design, with a focus on searching and advanced topics related to systematic reviews. As for previous Institutes, the program will be presented by health sciences librarians from Australia and the US and combine the latest content in engaging large group lectures and small group interactive sessions for practising concepts covered in the large groups, all in a relaxed and supportive environment. The program will include the following: PICO and study design; Medline/PubMed expert searching; peer review of searches; filters and text mining; grey literature; critical appraisal of therapy studies; overview of qualitative studies; critical appraisal of systematic reviews; and interpreting forest plots. 

While the Institute program was originally designed for health librarians, previous Institutes have also been attended by clinical educators, postgraduate students in the health sciences and researchers.
