Reading or hearing health news stories can be confusing and difficult to understand. It can be hard to know what to believe. Health News Review has compiled a list of tipsheets, links, and other resources to help both journalists and health care consumers evaluate claims about health care interventions. Here you will find such topics as:
- 3 reasons why you should be suspicious of study ‘subgroup’ results
- tips for understanding research and studies
- conflicts of interest in healthcare, academics, public relations and journalism
Check out the resources in this new toolkit.
