Pediatric dentistry along with the rest

of health care is becoming more evidencebased. To obtain a practical understanding of evidence-based methods, this hands-on

computer workshop will teach the participant how to 1) develop an appropriate clini-

cal question; 2) find the relevant literature pertaining to the question; and 3) critically evaluate the literature. Following the

introduction of evidence-based dentistry, the attendees will learn how to develop clinical questions using PICO, a method used to refine clinical questions and facilitate computer searches. Basic elements of PubMed will

then be introduced and applied, providing attendees with the computer skills necessary to perform literature searches related to specific clinical questions. Finally, basic and practical information about research design will be provided and used by the attendees to critically evaluate published research studies and rank them according to the strength of evidence they provide (ranging from expert opinion to systematic reviews.)
