Webinar: Research methods for the non-researcher

How do you know when it makes sense?

On November 5, 2013, a webinar featuring Dr. Elizabeth (Betty) Lin was hosted by the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) – North Region and EENet.

In this interactive webinar with health care professionals from Northern Ontario, Dr. Lin provided an overview of what scientific research is, the purpose of research methods, and guidelines and resources for evaluating peer-reviewed research articles.
