Health care educators, students, and professionals in search of teaching and learning materials may be interested in Teachers of Evidence-Based Health Care. Launched in October 2018, this project offers visitors a large open-access database of educational materials, which it refers to as the Critical Appraisal Resources Library (CARL) database. Visitors can easily search the database from the main page, where they can also browse and filter the available resources by fields such as target audience (e.g. schools, self-directed learning), format (e.g. lessons, cartoons, websites), language, and difficulty level. In accordance with the project's goal of encouraging health professionals and the general public "to think critically about the treatment claims they come across," the resources are also organized by EBM (evidence-based medicine) stage and by Key Concepts for critically evaluating health care claims. As of this write-up, the database contains more than 600 resources in numerous languages, with over 500 available in English. Teachers of Evidence-Based Health Care is hosted by the International Society for Evidence-Based Health Care, and its development was funded by the UK-based James Lind Initiative.
