Description of Evidence-based Medicine (Anaesthesia)


This course will give you the opportunity to study the central aspects of evidence-based medicine and to focus these on your specific area of anaesthesia practice. The emphasis is on the integration of theory and practice within a multi-professional working and learning environment and intends to develop a lifelong ability to understand how evidence is generated, retrieved, critically appraised and employed in clinical practice. Such a focus will ensure that you are equipped with the necessary foundations to further develop an evidence-based approach to practice throughout your career.

The course:

  • enables you to develop the skills and attitudes necessary to perform detailed evidence-based medicine and research in your area of speciality
  • develops your understanding of the necessary research methodologies to locate and appraise clinically relevant research critically
  • fosters a commitment to lifelong learning, and an inquisitive approach to clinical practice.

There is a flexible approach to course delivery. You can choose to study either by attending taught sessions or through distance learning.

What you study

You will study a number of modules which aim to increase the knowledge and skills that are necessary for evidence-based medicine. These will focus upon evidence-based practice, research design and methods, statistics and change management. You will be encouraged to apply these to your own area of speciality. In the final year you will undertake a research project related to your own area of interest.
