Abstract

The problem-centered, learner-focused, small-group process (PLS) is used by faculty to train learners in evidence-based medicine (EBM). Few affordable and accessible courses exist to train faculty in the PLS process. The results of a novel course to train faculty in the PLS process are described. The course was a one-day workshop consisting of five small group sessions with two facilitators. The participants were seven clinicians and four medical librarians. The initial small-group session was a discussion of concepts and principles related to successful facilitation skills; the subsequent four small groups reinforced these concepts and principles with role-playing and case scenarios using different steps in the EBM process. The course, including the use of the PLS process, scored highly on participant evaluations. The authors conclude that the introductory course effectively taught the PLS process for use in EBM facilitation.
