Quick survey: interest in an online course in critical appraisal?
For those who may be interested in providing feedback on a web-based course on filtering and critical appraisal of the literature, or participating in such a course:
Re-posted with permission by Nila Sathe, Eskind Biomedical Library at Vanderbilt:
Given the increasing number of training requests we receive each year and
the positive response to a case-based tutorial column we have begun publishing
in the JMLA, the Eskind Biomedical Library at Vanderbilt University Medical
Center is considering developing an advanced training program covering facets of
critically assessing and synthesizing the biomedical literature. The course
would also discuss techniques for developing a biomedical knowledge base and
integrating library resources with the institutional clinical and research
enterprises. The program would likely be partially online, with a weekend
or day-long site visit for intensive, hands-on training.
To gauge interest in such a program before we dedicate
significant resources and effort, including seeking scholarship funding, towards
developing it, we request that you complete the following 6 question interest
survey. The survey should take no more than 5 minutes, and responses are
anonymous unless you choose to provide your email address for further
You can access the survey at <https://email.mc.vanderbilt.edu/exchweb/bin/redir.asp?URL=http://www.hostedsurvey.com/takesurvey.asp?c=Eskind92315> through Wednesday December 20th.
We appreciate your assistance!
