Review and Present the Information


Website evaluation

This tool is useful in helping you decide whether a website’s information is G.S. (good science) or B.S. (bad science).  Did the author cite their sources?  What is their level of knowledge in the topic of interest?  What is the actual intent of the webpage?  These are all questions we must ask ourselves as we search the web for newly arising healthcare-related information daily.

Abstract Review

This tool will help you develop a systematic approach to reading and processing the information found in article abstracts.  This is vital in deciding which articles are worth reviewing the full text.
