    The Librarian and Work - Navigating the Maze
    PubMed Clinical Queries - forces you to step through PICO.

    P(opulation or Problem)

    EBM Heirarchy

    1. Systematic Reviews (Cochrane, DARE)
    2. Critically Appraised Topics (Clinical Evidence, DynaMed, FPIN Clinical Inquiries)
    3. Specialty spefic POEMS (Daily InfoPOEMS)
    4. Critically appraised individual articles (ACP Journal Club)
    5. Textbooks (UpToDate, Harrison's Online (expert opinion))
    6. Journals articles (Original research found with MEDLINE & other databases)

    Librarians will play a significan role in evaluating the ever increasing EBM resources and guiding clinicians through the pyramid

    You can have information free or uncensored but you can never have both.

    Physicians aren't going to look something up if they don't think it's going to be there.

    Sounds like it was a very good class.

    BTW, did you learn how to pronounce PICO?

    PICO is pronounced Pee-Coe.

    It was an excellent class, almost life changing.
