About the Essential Evidence format

 What previous attendees told us:

 "The content was superb - the rapid flow - the interactive nature of the speakers. I will definitely use the PDF as a reference!"
"I like the fast pace and great amount of high yield EBM information. I really enjoyed the clinical inquiries and the Help Desk."
"Very focused and useful evidence based data I can use in my clinical practice. Answered questions that I have wondered about but not been able to take the time to look up myself to see if data/recommendations have changed."
 "It's like they were in the clinic with me for the past six months, looking up my clinical questions!"
