Webinars: Enhance Your Critical Appraisal Skills and Get Involved with Critical Appraisal at Your Institution
June is the Month to Enhance Your Critical Appraisal Skills and Get Involved with Critical Appraisal at Your Institution (and purchase four webinars for the price of two!)
The following thoughts from our June webinar presenters sum up the importance of these webinars to the careers of medical librarians and the growth and impact of the health information profession. Take time in June to develop your critical appraisal skills and learn how you can expand your contribution to health care by teaching critical appraisal at your institution.
“It is necessary for medical librarians to know more than just how to search the literature, we also need to be knowledgeable consumers of and guides in using the literature.”
-Von Isenburg and Cantrell, Critical Appraisal for Librarians: Evaluating Randomized Controlled Trials
“Teaching critical appraisal is a crucial librarian service, and librarians have a vital and important role to play in building critical appraisal skills in health sciences curricula.”
