Episode 153 – Lara Varpio - Methods Consult #1
In this episode: This is Lara's first 'Methods Consult' for KeyLIME.
As a PHD trained scientist working in the field, it is of Lara's opinion that her job is to help others gain the skills and expertise needed to engage in Health Professions Education scholarship and research. In this first consult Lara gives some background and the benefits of interdisciplinary collaboration for illuminating research. It's not about what's in it for me, but what's in it for us.

Key Literature in Medical Education (KeyLIME) is a bi-weekly podcast produced by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Articles that are important, innovative, or will impact your educational practice are discussed.
How do you keep up-to-date with the medical education literature? How do you find the important articles, let alone have time to read and critique them? In clinical medicine, the number-needed-to-read (NNR) is 14. You would need to read 14 articles from one of the top 20 clinical journals to find one methodological sound, clinically important manuscript! The NNR for medical education has not been calculated, but it’s likely as daunting.
KeyLIME does the work for you. In each episode our hosts discuss, in about 10 minutes, the key points of a medical education article.
The KeyLIME podcasts are not specialty-specific. Listeners gain the advantage of hearing about valuable research that is published outside of top medical education journals or their own specialty-specific publication. In addition, each podcast earns listeners MOC credits under Section 2!
KeyLIME, the number-needed-to-listen is one.
The papers reviewed by KeyLIME are as eclectic as the medical education literature itself.
Articles are identified through:
- a regular systematic scan of MEDLINE using the CanMEDS Roles as keywords
- automated searches of the table of contents of the KeyLIME journal collection, which includes journals from clinical medicine, medical education, general education, and beyond…
- key publications submitted by listeners
Articles are tagged for inclusion in the KeyLIME database. Articles are selected for a key review based on:
- clinical importance
- educational impact
- methodological innovation
