CE Webinar: Information Mastery: Working Smarter and Not Harder to Answer Clinical Questions

During the past decade, there has been an explosion in the amount of medical and pharmacy information available. An individual would need to read 6,000 articles every single day to keep abreast of the most current information and even then it might not change the way you care for patients. This workshop will review basic concepts of information mastery, highlighting the importance of identifying your own tools for keeping up-to-date and finding answers to questions you may encounter.
