The Evidence Supported Medicine Union (EMU) was formed in the West Midlands to introduce and develop the ideas of evidence‐based medicine into general and hospital practice. To understand the educational needs of multi‐disciplinary members of acute trusts, a series of half‐day workshops were planned. All acute trusts accepted the invitation to send multi‐disciplinary teams — delegates attended in total in groups varying from one to nine. The major needs of acute trusts were: 1. critical appraisal skills, 2. multi‐disciplinary training workshops, 3. prioritizing areas for evidence‐based medicine, and 4. linking evidence‐based medicine into clinical audit.
