Plan
  • General EBM
    • 1 General linksites which are great starting points into the EBM world
  • I would use the sources in the following priority:
    • 2 The Cochrane database
    • 3 MEDLINE - one of many databases which are free and with different interfaces
    • 4 Secondary Journals - "let others critically appraise and present articles"
    • 5 Primary Journals on the web
    • 6 Guidelines on the web, well aware of the varying quality
    • 7 Internet
    • 8 Mailbases for posting questions I still have not found an answer to

OMNI
  • OMNI (Organising Medical Networked Information) is a gateway to the Internet for medicine, biosciences, and allied health.
    • http://omni.ac.uk/
  • Our aim is to provide access to only quality health information, covering resources in the UK and worldwide. We are funded by a UK higher education funding council, JISC.
slide7
OMNI
  • To provide access to only high quality health information resources, we choose them by a process of selection, evaluation and description. The criteria that we use for selection are all available from the OMNI home page, or at
