The CITI Program is the leading provider of research ethics, compliance, and professional development education. As part of the research block you must complete human research training. When you register you will need to complete the sections by the end of the research block and earn a certificate of completion. There are a number of lessons in this module but most of them are very short. DO NOT wait until the last minute to complete this assignment.
Step by step instructions are below. Give us a yell if you get stuck.
PubMed Essentials Class
For this week we want you to work through a PubMed training class. You'll need to make an account with the National Network of Libraries of Medicine. The class is made up of 9 very short video modules (2-3 minutes each) with interactive exercises built into each one so you can explore PubMed at your own pace. We will help you set this up but if you want to try it on your own basic steps are below.
Go ahead and run through this class in a couple of sittings. When you've completed the class, send us a screen shot of your dashboard (or grade).
- Make an account here: https://nnlm.gov/user/join
- Go to the PubMed Essentials Class page and scroll down to the the green Log In button: https://nnlm.gov/class/pubmed-essentials-2020-demand/23191
- Now you should be able to register for the class.
Medical Epidemiology by
Understand the role of epidemiology in clinical medicine for the best patient outcomes possible For nearly a quarter of a century, Medical Epidemiology has been the go-to text for understanding the principles and concepts of epidemiology and the relationship between population-based science and efficient patient care. It delivers the most current information on patterns of disease occurrence and risk factors - all clearly linked to clinical practice through the use of Health Scenarios in every chapter. This edition of Medical Epidemiology has been completely rewritten to reflect the transformative changes in the manner in which epidemiologic methods are being utilized in today's healthcare as well as the major shifts that have occurred at the policy level. New chapters have been added on many timely topics, including global health, social determinants of health, health inequalities, comparative effectiveness, quality of care, variations in care, and implementation science. Increased information about evaluating, summarizing, and using evidence for improved patient care and outcomes gives this edition an even greater clinical focus.
