The 2016 AEBPLI program will focus on topics that help librarians support Evidence Based Practice (EBP) within their institutions. In addition to support with teaching the steps in the EBP process, it will also include support for the development of systematic reviews. As with previous Institutes, the program will be presented by health sciences librarians from Australia and the United States. Content will be presented in engaging large group lectures followed by time to practice within small group sessions. It will be a four day program for librarians to work together in a relaxed and supportive environment. The 2016 program will cover the following: PICO and study design; Medline/PubMed expert searching; peer review of searches; the role of the librarian in systematic reviews; filters and text mining; grey literature; critical appraisal of therapy studies; overview of qualitative studies; critical appraisal of systematic reviews; and interpreting Forest plots.

During the four days you will have the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to support evidence-based practice and activities within your institutions.
