Often, evidence-based teaching and learning relies on studying
various categories of health care research such as therapy, diagnosis,
and economics-emphasizing the differences across the categories.
Librarians, as teachers and users of information, need to know about
and find the aspects of the health care literature that are common
to all categories of clinical research. This workshop looks at these
aspects of and shows why each is important, how to understand them
and how to locate them.
