Free NNLM CE. Wikipedia + Libraries. CHIS Level 1 and 2.
Wikipedia is a go-to resource for health and medical information, not just for the general public but for health care providers as well. Over 50% of physicians and 94% of medical students use Wikipedia to find medical information on the Internet. It may be popular, but library staff want to know how reliable it is and how they can assess that reliability on behalf of their patrons. This course will help you build the knowledge and skills you need to confidently guide your patrons to authoritative medical and health information online. This course is self-paced, delivered in Moodle over four weeks. It consists of 4 online modules which include activities such as discussion forums, readings and tutorials where you will gain insight into the value of Wikipedia as a viable reference and build the skills and knowledge needed to evaluate articles on Wikipedia for yourself or your patrons, with a specific focus on health and medical topics.
