Evidence based practice in postgraduate healthcare education: A systematic review
Gemma Flores-Mateo, Josep M Argimon
BMC Health Services Research , 2007, DOI: 10.1186/1472-6963-7-119
Abstract: The design is a systematic review of randomized, non-randomized, and before-after studies. The data sources were MEDLINE, Cochrane Library, EMBASE, CINAHL and ERIC between 1966 and 2006. Main outcomes were knowledge, skills, attitudes and behavior towards EBP. Standardized effect sizes (E-S) were calculated. The E-S was categorized as small (E-S < 0.2), small to moderate (E-S between 0.2 and 0.5), moderate to large (E-S between 0.51 and 0.79), large (E-S > 0.79). Reliability and validity of instruments for evaluating education were assessed. Studies excluded were those that were not original, performed in medical students, focused on prescribing practices, specific health problems, theoretical reviews of different components of EBP, continuing medical education, and testing the effectiveness of implementing guidelines.Twenty-four studies met our inclusion criteria. There were 15 outcomes within the 10 studies for which E-S could be calculated. The E-S ranged from 0.27 (95%CI: -0.05 to 0.59) to 1.32 (95%CI: 1.11 to 1.53). Studies assessing skills, behavior and/or attitudes had a "small to moderate" E-S. Only 1 of the 2 studies assessing knowledge had E-S of 0.57 (95 CI: 0.32 to 0.82) and 2 of the 4 studies that assessed total test score outcomes had "large" E-S. There were 22 instruments used, but only 10 had 2 or more types of validity or reliability evidence.Small improvements in knowledge, skills, attitudes or behavior are noted when measured alone. A large improvement in skills and knowledge in EBP is noted when measured together in a total test score. Very few studies used validated measures tests.One of the most consistent findings in health-service research is the gap between best practice (as determined by scientific evidence) on the one hand and actual clinical care on the other [1,2]. Over the past decade, evidence-based clinical guidelines have become a major feature of healthcare provision. Biomedical researchers in many countries have established program

Abstract: longitudinal studies of older seniors (over 80 years) are rare in the literature. this research was designed to study cognitive abilities in the oldest old at two different moments with a three-year interval. the research was quantitative, with a longitudinal and prospective design. the sample consisted of 66 individuals from 80 to 95 years of age, randomly selected for phase i, with 46 of these individuals tested again three years later, in phase ii. the instruments used were: geriatric depression scale, subjective perception of memory problems, mini-mental state examination, digit span, buschke test of free and cued recall, and the verbal fluency test - animal category. the results indicated that there was a small downward trend in the older seniors' performance at the end of the three-year period. more leisure activities and more years of formal schooling were good predictors of smaller decline in cognitive performance during the three-year period. despite their age, older seniors in this study showed only a slight decline in their cognitive abilities, with little impact on their cognitive patterns.
