Semester Frühjahrsemester 2023
Angebotsmuster Jedes Frühjahrsem.
Dozierende Xavier Bosch-Capblanch (x.bosch@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt Description: Decisions made by health services users, providers, managers and policy makers determine health care outcomes. Decisions are continuously made, no matter the level of knowledge of decision makers or the amount of available resources. The soundness of decisions depends, among many other issues, on the available evidence to inform them. We critically examine the different types of evidence (from colloquial to research) and how evidence is produced, interpreted and used in decision making. Systematic reviews play a particularly prominent role in decision making and students will be guided to understand their rational, methods, results and use.
