What is it?
The purpose of the CSHP OB Journal Club is to foster evidence-based, timely and contextualized learning that has immediate or near-future implications on front-line practice. Journal Club is structured as a 30-minute facilitated discussion over teleconference occurring on the last Thursday of each month (except December and January) from 1200-1230h.
Papers are disseminated by email 2-3 weeks in advance with accompanying backgrounder articles to enhance understanding of the topic where appropriate. Participation is open to all CSHP members and is completely voluntary. Some pharmacists may prefer to read the articles on their own, while others may call in more or less regularly if they prefer to have a discussion or learn how other hospitals and pharmacists are approaching a particular clinical problem. The overall atmosphere is informal and conversational as we learn clinical pearls from each other and share common wins and challenges in our own practices.
Papers are not limited to randomized controlled trials. Systematic reviews, narrative reviews, meta-analyses, cohort/case control studies, clinical guidelines, teachable moments, commentaries on clinical practice, ISMP Canada Safety Bulletins, CJHP point/counterpoint articles and Health Canada's Health Product InfoWatch publications will also be chosen based on their applicability to clinical practice. CSHP members are always encouraged to suggest topics and/or articles for future journal club sessions.
