How do you know? A medical literature search tutorial

On July 26, 2009, 5:58 am

The media continually tells us the important findings of newly-published studies. But how do you know if media's interpretation of the study is really what the study found? And how do you know if it was a well-designed study without methodological flaws? If you would like to know how to obtain studies and judge them for yourself then this workshop is for you! Through the use of an on-line Internet demonstration, you will learn the basic techniques for doing a medical literature search in the National Library of Medicine. Don't be at the mercy of the media any longer. Come and join in the inquiry!

I absolutely agree with those

I absolutely agree with those people who have nominated Inspiration Software for some awards in EDDIE last year. First of all they deserve it for sure. It is really innovative and helpful for creative people and I for example didn't see any other application like that on the internet for quite a long time. Oh and also thanks for Kidspiration - I have offered to use it in my kid's kindergarten and it really helps a lot. I will be waiting for other nice applications from you in the nearest future too. Thanks! Online Web Development degree AND Online Educational Psychology Degree
