CADTH “Fundamentals of online Health Care Research” workshop for caregivers
The Fundamentals of Health Research CADTH is a not-for-profit organization who provides credible, objective evidence to inform healthcare decision-making
‘A new study released today says…’
Every day media outlets and the internet bombard us with findings from the latest research – evidence intended to shed new light on ways to improve our personal health or our healthcare systems. But for those of us with little to no experience in science or healthcare or research, how do we make sense of all that information? What is it saying and what can we trust?
This introductory workshop, open to anyone, will provide participants with basic tips and tricks for locating evidence, reading evidence with a critical eye, understanding evidence, and applying evidence to the real world.

                        CADTH Liaison Officer, SK
