Grey Literature for Clinical Evidence 

Tuesday, June 28th, 9:30-12:30
CCRI Lincoln
MLA accredited for 3 CE credits

ARIHSL's summer CE class offering is Gaelen Adam’s  Grey Literature for Clinical Evidence. The goal of the program is to “foster a discussion of what grey literature is, when it is worth searching, and how to decide where to search. There will also be a demonstration of some of the more common grey literature sources for healthcare-related topics and a discussion of their features and limitations. Finally, we will work through one or more grey literature searches together as a group.  Gaelen has  presented the class  a few times now to NAHSL and to groups in Florida and Ohio and it is an MLA accredited course for 3 CE credits.

Please fill out and return the registration form prior to class. Contact CE Chair Pat Gorman with questions: pagorman@ccri.edu.
