This course will allow students to apply their knowledge of clinical research study designs, epidemiology, evidence- based medicine, and biostatistical principles to interpret and evaluate the findings published in the medical literature, and translate evidence to support patient-care decisions. Students are expected to read, interpret, evaluate, and synthesize information published in medical literature. Objective and rational conclusions are drawn from the analysis of information and applied to patient care. Examinations and literature evaluation project assignment are based on materials from didactic lectures and published articles. Evaluation of medical literature is a cornerstone of clinical pharmacy practice and is an important component of integrated therapeutics courses and experiential rotations.
