NGO Profile :
Quality Medical Knowledge Foundation (QMed) was established to help medical students, academicians, practitioners and consumers integrate best practices in searching medical literature from various online databases and cite them correctly. Their aim is to make literature searching and reference management training a part of the medical education curriculum in India. The organisation works to enable health professionals, institutions, students, patients, and health consumers working in the healthcare sector to obtain the best evidence from systematic research in order to ensure accurate delivery and availability of healthcare services. So far, QMed has delivered over 175 lectures and conducted 130 workshops in medical institutions across India to around 11,000 health science students and professionals.

Guest Lectures: QMed delivers guest lectures on literature searching and reference management at research methodology workshops organised by medical colleges, associations, journals, and conferences. They also conduct patient awareness lectures to educate health consumers on finding reliable and relevant health information. In FY15, they delivered 60 lectures in health science institutions across India.

Workshops: The organisation offers full or half day workshops in basic and advanced medical searches, as well as how to use a reference management tool. They have conducted 20 such training sessions. They have also participated in workshops on social media, cloud computing, legal compliance and good governance organized by other bodies such as HYNGO, CAP, iVolunteer etc. QMed was the only NGO selected from India to participate in the Cochrane Colloquium held in Hyderabad and was able to raise funds and got the opportunity to showcase their work to over 600 delegates. Workshops for students and professionals are also conducted via skype.
