Oxman AD, et al. Evidence-based care: 5. Lifelong Learning: How can we learn to be more effective? CMAJ. 1994;150(12):1971-1973.
The authors have developed by trial and error some guidelines for teaching and learning the skills needed to provide evidence-based care. Educational activities should be applied, participatory, self-directed, practice-based and practical, and they should focus on high-priority problems. Efficiency should be emphasized, and expectations of how much any clinician can accomplish should be reasonable.
