This course will also develop critical thinking skills, learn about the qualities of a good scientific study and how to obtain quality information.
These elements are essential for all health professionals given the amount of information available today and the need to be able to find reliable sources of information and to analyse the information provided.

At the end of the course, the student will:

-have improved his/her critical reasoning
