Formulation of Response & Follow Up : Summary

Formulation of Response & Follow Up : Summary

In this video, Prof. Shawn Chen illustrates the formulation, provision of response, and how to follow up the outcomes. She finally gives a brief summary of this week as well.

To begin with, there are five steps to present the information. Pay attention to the fourth one. Remember to explain why this treatment you chose will be the best, and provide those you do not recommend and the reasons. Elaborate on the weaknesses and strengths of those studies.

Besides, there are some hints, including remembering to support the answer with reliable references.

After providing a recommendation to a healthcare provider or to a patient, you can check if they really follow your recommendation. If not, what is the reason? By doing this, you will gradually know what you need to adjust.

In conclusion, logical thinking to apply evidence-based medicine to clinical settings is important. Instead of just saying all good words and avoiding those weaknesses, we need to provide information in a balanced way.

This is the end of this week.
