Library Session

The library session is meant to provide you with tools that you can use to quickly find evidence-based information for clinical decisions. The learning objectives of the sessions are:

1. Identify the nature of your clinical question
2. Define a clinical question in a way that helps you to find relevant health information.
3. Identify key health information sources available at UofT or free online.
4. Filter search results to find valuable information

Library Assignment (5%)

The library component of the course will include a quiz that you will complete by the end of the class: March 29, 2019 at 1:50 pm. The assignment is worth 5% of your mark and will be available under Quizzes in Quercus.
