In this workshop the principles of evidence-based practice will be introduced and applied according to a clinical scenario beginning with a relevant clinical problem, formulation of a “PICO”, critical appraisal of a paper, learning about study designs, interpreting the magnitude and relevance of clinical outcomes, and translate these to the individual patient for shared decision making.
