Understanding Evidence-based Healthcare was created by the United States Cochrane Center. The course was originally launched as part of a project undertaken by Consumers United for Evidence-based Healthcare (CUE) to help consumer advocates understand the fundamentals of evidence-based healthcare. We found, however, that this course is popular with both lay consumers and health professionals and is a required element of a number of educational curricula. A few years ago, the Blue Shield of California Foundation (BSCF) asked us to develop a new “front end” to the course, applicable to physicians, so that they too would see the applicability of the course to their own work. We have done just this and welcome you to the version specifically oriented to the physician participant.
