The product produced is a complete e-learning package.
E-learning sessions were designed to allow learning in the workplace during short breaks within clinical activities, with the option to interrupt and restart learning flexibly. The learning objectives and outcomes were to help participants learn how to identify their trainees’ knowledge gaps related to current clinical practice and to use these to initiate EBM teaching.
Each module includes an e-learning course that outlined the basic prerequisite EBM competencies to be acquired by participants. The clinical setting is described taking into account the variation in practice between different healthcare systems. Practical advice is provided on facilitating teaching of the various EBM steps with videos demonstrating EBM teaching in action.
