Background: EBVM allows clinicians to utilise best available evidence to inform their decision-making. In 2015, a project was undertaken by an international team to develop a training course ‘EBVM Learning’ which is available on RCVS Knowledge’s website. The course consists of modules describing the five stages of EBVM (5As: Ask, Acquire, Appraise, Apply & Assess) supported by case-studies and quizzes. In 2019, a study gathered stakeholder feedback that highlighted the usefulness of the course and informed updates to ensure its ongoing relevance. A further project (2020-21) has developed a slimline version specifically for busy practitioners; consultation with veterinarians and veterinary nurses has contributed to the design. Promoting EBVM in Asia: Several initiatives have been undertaken in collaboration with colleagues in Bangladesh to increase awareness of EBVM in the region. These have included focus group discussions with practitioners, developing an EBVM course for Masters students and presentations at conferences. In addition, as part of a webinar organised by the Indonesia Veterinary Students Association, a series of case-based learning resources have been created. These use common clinical scenarios to provide experience of the 5As; each starts with a clinical question, followed by information on how to acquire the evidence and appraise its quality and relevance, and finally how to apply evidence-based changes in clinical practice and assess and monitor the subsequent impact. Take home message: International collaboration has led to the development of relevant, freely accessible learning resources that are supporting the growing interest in EBVM across the globe.
