Self-directed learning is a process where the learners take the initiative to determine their learning needs and what objectives and resources will meet those needs.

Evidence based medicine (EBM) is the use of evidence or the best information available for decision making in clinical practice. Below we provide a selection of resources for these processes and approaches.
