What are your criteria in reporting on health care research? (Gary Schwitzer presentation)
Workshop: What are your criteria in reporting on health care research? (Health Journalism 2011)
Speaker: Gary Schwitzer, publisher, HealthNewsReview.org
Workshop description: What do you think needs to be included in stories about research on new treatments, tests, products and procedures? The HealthNewsReview.org project has put its stake in the ground that there are 10 criteria that deserve attention. They may not be perfect, but if they’re not, what criteria do you use? In this interactive workshop, you’ll look at some studies, dismantle some stories and decide – perhaps in ways you never have before – what’s essential.
