Be a partner in your health: how to find & evaluate health information
Description: We are each in charge of our own health and well-being and having the right information can help us stay healthy and recover when we are not well. The Internet is filled with health information, some trustworthy and evidence-based, and some designed to sell something or to misinform. Each year books are published that make big claims about health topics, some are based on evidence, and some are nothing more than one person’s opinion. This lecture will provide some tips for how to find and evaluate health information.
This lecture is given by Francesca Frati, a McGill Health Sciences librarian. Prior to coming to McGill, Francesca worked at the Jewish General Hospital for 12 years. During that time, she provided health information to patients and families at Herzl Family Medicine Clinic and at the Patient & Family Resource Centre, and was the founder and chair of the hospital-wide Patient Education Network.
