PenARC Free Applying Evidence in Practice workshop

Wednesday 13th May 2020 9.30 – 1.30 pm

Medical School Building, St Luke's Campus, University of Exeter, Exeter, EX1 2LU


At PenARC we believe that better health and care can be provided to patients and the public by making decisions that are based on evidence.

This applying evidence in practice workshop aims to develop healthcare professionals' skills in using the findings of research in their daily practice.

 The objectives for the workshop will be:
●    To consider how best to discuss the effects of treatments with patients
       - this will be done in the context of discussions with patients with both single and multiple conditions
●    To gain an understanding of the SHERPA model as a way to structure discussions with those with multiple conditions

The workshop should be applicable for all healthcare professionals.
