Cochrane Effective Practice and Organisation of Care (EPOC) Group

Information about the group, a newsletter, downloadable database of bibliographic references about achieving change in healthcare plus links to health-related sites and information about discussion groups.

Evidence Based Education (UK)

A site produced by the Curriculum Evaluation Centre at the University of Durham. The site discusses similarities with Evidence Based Medicine and provides conference details and some tools such as "What is an effect size?"

Evidence Based Occupational Therapy-University of Queensland Group (EBOT-UQ)

The Evidence Based Occupational Therapy-University of Queensland Group was formed by occupational therapists at The University of Queensland, Australia with the primary goal of promoting and facilitating evidence based occupational therapy practice. Specifically the group aims to provide research, training and continuing education in evidence based occupational therapy, support the location and access of occupational therapy evidence, and facilitate collaboration between occupational therapists with respect to evidence based practice. These web pages provide information on the aims and roles of the EBOT-UQ group; locating research evidence relevant to occupational therapy; evidence based practice web links; an elective subject: "Evidence Based Practice in Allied Health"; and The International Symposium on Evidence Based Occupational Therapy: Collaborating For the Future.

Evidence-Based Practice Centers

The Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR) established 12 centers in the United States to develop evidence reports and technology assessments of diagnostic and therapeutic interventions used in a variety of clinical conditions. The AHCPR has chosen to pursue a partnering approach that brings developers and users together at the beginning of the process. These partners, which may be professional societies, health plans, states, and other entities, will use the products of the Evidence based Practice Centers (EPCs) to develop and implement practice guidelines and other clinical quality improvement tools.
