This longitudinal track aims to enable all students to gather and critically evaluate research information, effectively incorporate the selected information into their knowledge base and apply the knowledge in patient care, and also to lay thefoundation for future training in carrying out high quality research.
This is not a comprehensive subject guide, but rather a selective list of materials that are most useful for this track of study.
Quality guidelines are produced or endorsed by national, health or medical organization, professional society or expert panel.
