BMJ EBM Journal Call for papers: Teaching of evidence-based health care

3 December, 2019

Recently we shared courtesy of the evidence based health forum, discussions about EBM/P (Evidence Based Medicine / Practice) how it started, where it is today, and its future as an idea and practice changer. Below we share courtesy of the same forum, a call for papers from BMJ EBM:


Dear Colleagues,

I wanted to draw your attention to a call for submissions for a special edition of the BMJ EBM journal on teaching and education in EBM/EBHC. Deadline for submissions is 20 March 2020. Selected articles will be invited to present at EBM Live 2020 in Toronto.

Happy to answer any questions/queries.

Best, David.

What next for education in evidence-based healthcare? A call for submissions

“Today, we announce plans for a stream of BMJ EBM content to revisit efforts to teach the skills of EBM and ask you to join us. A key aim is to discuss, debate and demonstrate effective teaching. Where necessary, we want to challenge current practice and consider the next paradigm shift in teaching and practice. And where possible, we want to challenge with evidence.”
