Podcast 10 - 12th November 2018
This podcast discusses a published paper in medical teacher www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/0142159X.2018.1504164. The confusion that surrounds systematic reviews vs reviews that are systematic is discussed. Michele Daniel from Michigan Medical School presents this work which is also authored with Professor Morris Gordon, BEME Editorial committee chair and Madalena Patricio, BEME chair. She argues that the systematic component of reviews is vital, but does not align methodologically with Cochrane format systematic review and is open to numerous methods.
Podcast 9 - 12th November 2018
This podcast reports the first focussed BEME review (see twelve tips to focussed review – www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/0142159X.2018.1513642). Michelle Daniel, author of the review and deputy chair of the BEME editorial committee summarises this work. This both exemplifies the findings, but also the use of this method.

This 8th BEME podcast builds on a stellar presentation at AMEE 2018 discussing equity in health professions education research. An international collaboration of authors, led by Susan Van Schalkwyk of Stellenbosch University in South Africa and Manuel João Costa from the University of Minho in Portugal, explore: the definition of equity in HPE research; bring in data from their own scholarship to discuss and elucidate the importance of this topic; and make focussed recommendations for the BEME and HPE communities to take active steps in promoting equity in HPE research. The session was developed by and is moderated by Janet Corral of the University of Colorado BICC.
