  • Librarians’ Role in Evidence-Based Medicine Education for Healthcare Policymaker
    Librarians’ Role in Evidence-Based Medicine Education for Healthcare Policymaker Maylene Qiu, Systematic Review Coordinator and Clinical Liaison Librarian at Biomedical Library, University of Pennsylvania Recorded: Sep 19 2018 54 mins
    NOTE: NEW DATE!

    The practice of evidence-based medicine (EBM) requires retrieving the knowledge from ever-increasing volume of literature. Librarians have supported EBM by offering information searching skills and various tailored training programs.

    While users’ needs constantly drive library’s teaching activities, customizable EBM teaching modules have been developed to respond to different needs of library's constituencies, particularly the policy makers within a university’s healthcare system. This involvement creates a new avenue to convey library’s value.

    About the speaker Maylene Qiu

    Maylene is responsible for developing and providing systematic review services for the patrons principally from the health sciences schools at UPenn and the UPenn Healthcare System. She also serves as the Clinical Liaison Librarian promoting evidence-based medicine information resources and services.

    Before coming to Penn, Maylene was Clinical Reference Librarian at Quillen College of Medicine Library at East Tennessee State University, where she provided services for the clinicians at the Point-of-Care.

    Prior to the library field, she has 10-year experience in pharmaceutical science obtained from working in China, Japan, and Canada. In that career, she commercialized several products in nutrition and agriculture. She earned a B.S. in Pharmaceutical Science from the Nanjing University of Chinese Traditional Medicine, and an M.A. in the Library and Information Science from the University of Wisconsin – Madison.
  • Evidence-Based Searching and Reporting the Search for Systematic Reviews
    Evidence-Based Searching and Reporting the Search for Systematic Reviews Farhad Shokraneh, University of Nottingham Recorded: Aug 22 2018 63 mins
    Search methods are part of the research methods in systematic reviews and evidence synthesis. Running a robust search requires following the existing evidence in selection of databases and search filters, addition of limitations, and inclusion of a search methodologist in your team. While a proper evidence-based search protocol could reduce waste and increase value in systematic reviewing, proper reporting should make your search a piece of science.

    The search methods should be reported in a way that anyone who have access to the databases could repeat the search strategies and search methods (reproducibility) and retrieve the same or very similar search results both in terms of content and numbers (replicability). Following the minimum requirement for reporting the search, the team could produce an evidence-based search method that could be re-used by the readers. The team could also share the search results, as part of their research data, to prevent duplicate efforts for the researchers who want to update the review.

    About Speaker:
    Farhad Shokraneh studied Medical Library and Information Science for seven years and was a clinical librarian in an emergency department for a short time. He worked as a research fellow in Research Center for Pharmaceutical Nanotechnology for two years. Farhad later joined Cochrane Schizophrenia Group in University of Nottingham to manage the largest database of schizophrenia trials and to update over 320 Cochrane reviews. He is also a volunteer with 14 Cochrane groups.

    He ran his first systematic review search in 2004 and continued providing search and consultancy services to academic, clinical and policy making teams around the world for over 2,000 grant applications, clinical trials, economic evaluations, rapid reviews, scoping reviews, umbrella reviews, systematic reviews, overviews, health technology assessments, and clinical practice guidelines.

  • Searching for drug safety and benefit-risk evaluations
    Searching for drug safety and benefit-risk evaluations Dr. Jean-Dominique Pierret, Scientific Information Expert Recorded: Apr 25 2018 56 mins
    Scientific literature is one of the largest source of adverse event reports, making it an essential part of pharmacovigilance. Marketing authorization holders are expected to perform systematic literature searches using reference databases and local journals from countries where the medicinal product has a marketing authorization. The retrieved information needs to be collated, analyzed, and communicated at least once a week. However, several challenges are associated with this process. Large amounts of data from various sources, various regulatory requirements, building and maintaining search strategies increase the complexity of literature searches.

    In this webinar, Scientific Information Expert Dr. Jean-Dominique Pierret will give a brief overview of regulatory obligations and usefulness of literature in the drug development process. And then he will introduce how he set up literature search for pharmacovigilance: such as selecting the databases, building the strategy with a focus on early detection of safety issue and benefit/risk assessment. Finally, he will give examples of challenges that may occur during literature search for pharmacovigilance.

    About the speaker:
    Dr. Jean-Dominique Pierret is a Scientific Information Expert and he spent +20 years in the pharmaceutical industry. He is currently working for Galderma R&D. With a strong background in information sciences applied to the biomedical domain, he is involved in the management of a corporate scientific library, in competitive intelligence and in information retrieval. Jean-Dominique is in charge for years of the literature survey for pharmacovigilance.
