Sponsored by the Section on Evidence Based Health Care, The New York Academy of Medicine
The New York Academy of Medicine will again offer an intensive 3 day integrated workshop experience in its “Teaching Evidence Assimilation for Collaborative Research” series. The 3-day conference features outstanding speakers on leading issues in evidence-based clinical practice (EBCP) as well as intensive facilitated workshop streams in basic EBCP skills, policies and guidelines and system level implementation science, or ‘knowledge translation’. One stream will focus on the use of the GRADE system for evidence synthesis for practice guideline development. A companion stream will address development and implementation of clinical policies within specific health care settings.
This year’s internationally recognized faculty will include Andy Oxman, Ian Graham, Dawn Stacey, Marita Titler as well as faculty from the University of Pennsylvania Evidence Based Practice Center and the ECRI Institute.
Ian Graham is a Senior Scientist in the Clinical Epidemiology Program at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute and is a faculty member of the Ottawa University School of Nursing. He previously served as Vice President in charge of Knowledge Translation within the Canadian Institutes for Health Research. He is prominent as a major contributor to the development of knowledge translation as a research discipline and to applying that discipline to issues of clinical guideline implementation. He will lead the knowledge translation stream within the workshop.
Andy Oxman is a major figure in the areas of systematic reviews and practice guidelines, having previously chaired the Cochrane Collaboration, developed the guideline protocol for the World Health Organization and having initiated the GRADE effort with Gordon Guyatt, Holger Schunemann and a few others. He has recently launched DECIDE, an international initiative in dissemination and communication of guidelines. He currently leads the Norwegian Knowledge Center for Health Services in Oslo. He will lead the GRADE stream and be joined by Shahnaz Sultan and Reem Mustafa who are prominent members of the GRADE Working Group.
Dawn Stacey is a faculty member of the Ottawa University School of Nursing and is well known for her research in shared decision making. She is Director of the Patient Decision Aid Research Group, Ottawa Hospital Research Institute. In 2012 she was awarded the University Research Chair in Knowledge Translation to Patients. She will contribute to several streams during the workshop.
Marita Titler is the Associate Dean for Practice and Clinical Scholarship and the Rhetaugh Dumas Endowed Chair of the Division of Health Systems and Effectiveness Science at the University of Michigan School of Nursing. She is widely recognized for having developed the Iowa Model of Evidence Based Practice to Promote Quality Care.
