PF-5 From the Institution to the Clinician: Are You Practicing Evidence or Hearsay? A JOE Literature Review

5 (4 votes)

CE Hours: 2.25

Course Description:

This session will review evidence-based practice guidelines and then give real life clinical situations and use an audience response system to identify the level of evidence supporting the clinical decisions. At the end of each case, a collection of JOE papers will be cited to guide the clinical decision. Finally, we will discuss strengths and limitations of current evidence-based dental guidelines.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to: 

  • Describe evidence-based dental guidelines.
  • Describe how they would apply JOE papers to making evidence-based clinical decisions.
  • Describe clinical scenarios and relevant JOE publications
