Working with your Specialty/Department

CEBIS Specialists work closely with clinical teams to embed the use of research evidence in day-to-day practice, supporting evidence-based learning, and improving patient care.

We can

  • facilitate Evidence in Practice Group discussions, to discuss and appraise the evidence in relation to a clinical query and make a decision on how to proceed.
  • attend clinics, ward rounds, MDTs or other clinical meetings to identify queries and provide the evidence to support decision making.
  • support teaching sessions, including journal clubs, to make them more evidence-based and develop skills such as critical appraisal and literature searching.

“We looked at the best evidence and developed our own protocol to suit the local situation. This work has been revisited every 2 years, and we evaluated every new body of evidence provided by the updated research”  (Ophthalmologist)

“In this case, we were able to discuss the best treatment options at current stage based on evidence rather than individual views. Our management strategy in this rare group of patients was soundly based on the little evidence available.”  (Rheumatologist)
