Evidence Based Library and Information Practice The Canadian Scene Su Cleyle Associate University Librarian Memorial University of Newfoundland CLA Teleconference Series September 21, 2005 Outline

Brief Background What is EBP and EBL? Canadian Scene EBL Conferences EBLIG Evidence Based Library and Information Practice How you can get involved? What is EBM/P? Evidence based medicine is the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decision about the care of individual patients. This practice means integrating individual experience with the best available external evidence from systematic

research. EBP - 5 Step Process 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Ask an answerable question Find the best evidence to answer the question Critically appraise that evidence Integrate it with expertise and the patients individual requirements

Evaluate effectiveness of the search for the evidence as well as the outcomes of the application of the evidence Factors Feeding into the Best Decisions Best evidence Clinician experience Patient unique situation

Research (gathering) Research evaluation How Do They Do It? evidence based medicine requires you to not only read papers, but to read the right papers at the right time and then to alter your behaviour (and what is often more difficult, the behaviour of other people) in light of what you have found Asking the Right Question PICO: P - Defines the Patient or Problem I - Defines the Intervention

C- Gives a Comparison O- Describes the clinical outcome PICO Example P(atient) in a 60yrs old patient with osteoarthritis I(ntervention) does the use of Glucosamine

C(omparison) as compared to NSAIDs O(utcome) give improved pain relief? Getting the Answer Databases dealing with medicine have search

qualifiers built in Evidence hierarchies Pre-appraised evidence or secondary evidence Structured abstracts and paper outlines EBP & Lifelong Learning Finding the answer is part of the process. It is important to contribute to the clinicians knowledge base by staying abreast of research and

continually learning about new practices, medicines and procedures. EBP is lifelong learning and realizing that decisions made in a vacuum are not necessarily the best possible decisions. Adding to the Evidence Base There is also a responsibility for practitioners to add to the knowledge base

Conducting primary research Evaluating research, applying the results and reporting back to the evidence base on conclusions Building on previous research to create a particular evidence base EBL How is it Different ? Evidence Based Librarianship (EBL) is a means to improve the profession of librarianship by asking questions, finding, critically appraising and incorporating research evidence from library science (and other disciplines) into daily practice. It also involves encouraging librarians to conduct research.

Evidence Based Librarianship Applying the Model Yes, it can work here Follow the steps and ask the questions Changes have to occur

Looking for evidence Body of knowledge Adding to the body of evidence Approach to Research Communication of research Looking for Evidence - Existing Body of Knowledge

Koufogiannakis, Slater and Crumley reviewed 2664 articles dealing with library and information practice from 2001 publishing year, 30.3% were identified as research articles. Adding to the Body of Evidence Approach to Research

Incorporate research into our decision making model Conduct research to answer questions Communicate research Write papers that identify research results clearly Lobby publishers to improve indexing that identifies research types

EBL Acceptance Many articles have been written on the topic of EBL EBL conferences (England, Alberta and Australia2005) More and more librarians understand the importance of incorporating research into their decision making process to make best use of the budgets and people resources. But little has been done to make the changes

necessary to allow for its incorporation into our daily routines EBL The Canadian Scene Presentations EBL Interest Group via CLA EBLIG Listserv International in membership CLA Conference 2006 Ottawa
