Contributed Poster: Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) Interactive Storyboard Tutorial for Medical Students and Allied Health Professions: An Innovative Approach.  Linda SukLing Murphy, MLIS, Stephen L. Clancy, MLS, AHIP, and Cathy Palmer, MLS.

UCI Libraries has developed an extremely polished, online tutorial on Evidence Based Practiced (EBP). The tutorial uses a case of otitis media in an infant to walk through the steps of EBP – assessing the need, asking the question, acquiring information and appraising the literature. At the point in the tutorial when you are asked to form an answerable question using the PICO (Patient-Intervention-Comparison-Outcome), the first interactive quiz appears asking the student to correctly identify the parts of the PICO question. Continuing on through the tutorial, users encounter a PubMed searching demo and additional questions to assess the user’s ability to effectively read the literature.

In addition to the interactive demo of the tutorial, the poster contained the more information on the successes and challenges of creating the presentation. Challenges in design techniques and frequent changes in the PubMed interface were briefly mentioned. The tools used to create the tutorial were Macromedia Captivate, Flash and Camtasia. Linda will be presenting a follow up paper on this topic at MLA 2010, in Washington D.C.
