The OHSU Evidence Based Medicine Clinical Case Based Learning Sessions are designed for remote presentation of best available evidence to answer patient care questions, present in a group, to encourage collaboration. It is led by one faculty and many of our groups have been remote via Zoom/WebEx. 
Learning objectives:

  1. Develop a curiosity for specific, patient-based clinical questions

    • Formulate a discrete, patient-oriented clinical question 
    • Evaluate literature for applicability of information 
    • Evaluate sources for quality of evidence 
    • Summarize and cite findings in a succinct written format
    • Present a patient case to his/her peers in a fluid manner
