Purpose: The aim of the paper is to present a computer-based curriculum on evidence-based medicine and its performances in medical students training.
Materials: A number of thirteen tutorials and six supplemental materials were assembly into a portable application using the Microsoft HTML Help program.
Methods: Pre- and post-study survey and tests were developed to measure the students’ knowledge and attitude on evidence-based medicine. Forty medical students were enrolling voluntary at the study and completed the pre- and post-study survey as well as pre- and post-tests at the beginning and completion of a three month period of training. Data were presented as absolute and relative frequency, with confidence intervals, and were analyzed using the Wilcoxon test.
Results: Most of the medical students included into the study were hear about evidence-based medicine concepts for the first time by participation of the study. Pre- and post-test evaluation results show that the computer-assisted evidence-based medicine training can improve knowledge significantly.
Conclusion: The developed evidence-based medicine curriculum it proved to be useful in medical students training giving them access to information in their native language and improving their knowledge, opening the way towards the use of evidence in medical decisions.
