While our Information Literacy – Core content package provides a more general overview of foundational skills suitable for general education and First-Year Experience courses, Information Literacy – Health Science is designed to offer much more specific instruction. Here is a sample of the material that can be added to your instruction when you use Information Literacy – Health Science:

Health Resources:

  • PubMed Tips and Tricks: A tutorial that includes multiple checkpoints and a screencast video of PubMed database usage. This tutorial provides students with an overview of the purpose and scope of PubMed and offers strategies for determining whether to use the database and how to use it to best meet information needs.
  • CINAHL: A tutorial with checkpoints that provides students with an overview of the purpose and scope of CINAHL, how to best determine if the database can meet an information need, and how to formulate an appropriate search.

Understanding and Using Research Sources:

  • Reading a Scholarly Article: A tutorial, including checkpoints and a mini-video, that provides an overview of the elements to look for in a scholarly article, including relevance, reliability, and quality. The tutorial guides students through how to look for and identify these elements in the various components commonly found in a scholarly article, from title and abstract through methodology, data, and conclusions.

Research Needs and Search Strategies:

  • Intro to Medical Databases: A full-length video that teaches students to identify the features and characteristics of medical databases in order to select the most appropriate database for their research needs.
  • Search Strategy for Health Information: A tutorial with checkpoints that provides an introductory overview of strategies and techniques for locating reliable, accurate, and current health information as a student and a practitioner.
  • PICO Questions Part 1: Writing a PICO Question: A tutorial that includes multiple checkpoints, walking students through the components of a PICO question and how to write their own question.
  • PICO Questions Part 2: From PICO Question to Search: A tutorial that includes a mini-video and multiple checkpoints allowing students to practice transitioning from a PICO question they develop to focused searches for relevant information.

Evidence-Based Practice:

  • Introduction to Evidence-Based Practice: A tutorial, including checkpoints and a mini-video, that provides an overview of the concept of evidence-based practice and its significance to the study and practice of clinical care. Concepts introduced include the evidence-based practice triangle and the cycle of 5 A’s.
  • Identifying Types of Evidence: A tutorial, including checkpoints, that introduces students to the types of evidence they will encounter during the Acquire stage of evidence-based practice. Types of evidence include systematic reviews, randomized controlled trials, cohort studies, case-controlled studies, background information, and expert opinion.
  • Understanding Study Design: A tutorial, featuring checkpoints and a mini-video, that builds upon students’ understanding of the types of evidence they will encounter when acquiring evidence. The tutorial walks students through the purpose and characteristics of randomized trials, observational cohort studies, and studies of diagnostic test properties, prognosis, and differential diagnosis. A study example and a list of study benefits and limitations are provided for each study design.
  • Using the Hierarchy of Evidence: A tutorial, including checkpoints and a mini-video, that builds upon students’ understanding of types of evidence and study design. The tutorial introduces students to the hierarchy of evidence that they may use to assess the quality of studies located during the Acquire stage of evidence-based practice.
