Doing research as a practitioner: Getting what you need from the literature

As leaders in Gerontology, you are often expected to be up-to-speed on the latest knowledge in the field. Judging whether new ideas are evidence-based or just a fad is difficult in an information rich environment. This webinar will review different strategies for accessing research and judging the quality of research to support the critical problem solving of professionals in the field of aging.
