Santana Arroyo, Sonia; del Carmen Gonzalez Rivero, Maria
Community & Junior College Libraries, v18 n2 p89-98 2012
The National Medical Library of Cuba is currently developing an information literacy program to train users in the use of biomedical databases. This paper describes the experience with the course "Cochrane Library: Evidence-Based Medicine," which aims to teach users how to make the best use of this database, as well as the evidence-based medicine concept for making better decisions about medical care. During the course, the Big 6[TM] Model is also introduced for finding and organizing the evidence-based medical information; it also enables students to create information products (electronic bulletins) that will allow the presentation of search results as well as promoting information for healthcare in the future.
