AbstractObjective. To identify the perceptions and benefits of participation in a web-based journal club by the critical care pharmacy residents who presented and their mentors. Methods. Former and current resident presenters and their mentors were invited to complete one of three electronic surveys created to assess their perceptions of their experiences with a web-based journal club sponsored by the Clinical Pharmacy and Pharmacology (CPP) Section of the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM). Descriptive statistics were used to analyze the data gathered. Results. Thirty-eight (41%) former residents, 23 (72%) recent or current residents, and 32 (58%) presentation mentors responded to the survey. Residents in both groups indicated that participation was a beneficial educational and professional experience. Residents who more recently presented an online journal club reported improved confidence in critically evaluating research, determining clinical applications of published literature, developing evidence-based recommendations, and educating trainees on evidence-based medicine. Mentors believed their residents' journal club participation influenced their future involvement in both the SCCM and the CPP Section and were extremely likely to recommend their future residents participate in the web-based journal club. Conclusion. Participation in a web-based journal club provided professional benefits to participants and their mentors that extended beyond the presentation itself. Interaction with the organization through this experience may have encouraged these individuals to maintain their professional involvement in the organization after the web-based journal club experience was completed. Other professional organizations may benefit from implementation of a similar web-based journal club.
