aims to develop a European Qualification in Teaching
Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) that will improve transparency
across the European healthcare sector through the design, development,
promotion and piloting of a European training programme specifically
for the training of healthcare trainers in EBM.
The project will develop an EBM Training the Trainers curriculum
that is integrated into clinical practice.
The project wishes to develop an integrated course
incorporate teaching of EBM in everyday clinical practice
be relevant to health care professionals across Europe
enhance and standardise the teaching of doctors
improve professional clinical guidelines
improve mobility of doctors
improve the care of patients
improve the efficiency of European medical practice
The project will produce a core curriculum for
teaching EBM in various clinical settings. The curriculum will be
translated into each country’s language and will be flexible
enough to include country specific modules related to clinical guidelines
and legislation relevant to each country. The curriculum will involve
a new combination delivery method including both work based (e.g.
in the hospital) and home/classroom teaching.
The development of a Training the Trainers programme will help provide
a European qualification which will enable the trainers to fit more
easily into the healthcare system of other EU states and will improve
the efficiency and speed of EBM accreditation, providing a quality
provision, effective work practice and improved patient care - again
to be put into use.
In addition to the development of a European qualification in teaching
EBM, the project will identify, collate and disseminate information
on existing Training the Trainer courses in partner countries, their
training needs, practices, skills and contacts through a network
of influential healthcare, academic, social and governmental organisations,
facilitating the integration of doctors of all ages and backgrounds
into the larger European employment market.
