Overview of the Club
The Pharmacy Evidence Appraisal Club (PEAC) is committed to promoting evidence-based medicine in the faculty. As we are knowledge brokers, it is essential to find the underlying truths in research to make the best recommendations; it’s what gives value to our profession. It is our aim to foster a friendly and helpful environment where students can master the skills necessary to become evidence aficionados.
Highlights or Club Initiatives
In the past year, PEAC has put on numerous events to promote evidence-based medicine, including:
- Student-led presentations on cutting edge studies (always with a faculty expert present)
- Hosted a Provincial Academic Detailing session (a professional pharmacy service used to keep healthcare providers up to date on evidence-based best practice)
- Collaborated with P-TALC to create an evidence appraisal tool for students (available on our website)
- Bribing people to attend via homemade cookies at every event (truly the backbone of our club)
During the online-era, we hope to continue promoting evidence-based medicine via digital content such as useful infographics.
