Training: Evidence based info for developing countries

HINARI Train the Trainer Workshop: Help developing-country partners gain access to and produce evidence-based information! Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine Friday, March 4, 2016 | 8:00 am—5:00 pm | 1440 Canal Street | Room 1201 Join the army of HINARI users with 21st century information skills to make a positive impact on evidence-based public health research, policy and clinical decision making. HINARI provides free or very low cost online access to the major journals and e-books in biomedical and related social sciences to local, not-for-profit institutions in LMICs. Presently, 180 publisher partners and up to 400 publishers’ content offer more than 60,000 free full-text articles and e-books. However, among most HINARI-registered institutions, neither administrators nor users are aware of it nor have the user name and passwords to access it. HINARI trainers can create awareness among their research partners and develop knowledge and skill to find, access, organize and use scholarly information. HINARI instruction creates awareness and knowledge prior to departure to or return from low or middle-income countries. It will enable you to develop and practice skills to: · Find e-journals · Connect to HINARI/PubMed and other evidence-based resources · Use PubMed Filters, MeSH vocabulary, and Clinical Queries · Use HINARI/E-book resources · Find grey literature & open access journals · Develop authorship skills : read and write a scientific paper · Use citation management software Registration is Free! Please register before Thursday, March 3 Register here: Participants should have basic search skills and knowledge of PubMed. It is important to bring a laptop to participate in exercises during the workshop.
