We are inundated with scientific information from a variety of sources. As health care professionals, we are expected to transform these data to useful information, and eventually to knowledge and wisdom. This presentation will address common fallacies and myths found in the professional literature, and highlight methods to improve understanding and applicability of the scientific literature in order to inform clinical practice.
Learning Objectives
