Mike Roy 608-443-9563

The course examines sources of readily available and reliable information on prescription drugs and biopharmaceuticals. Participants will be encouraged to locate and examine information--use, risks, benefits and adverse reactions--on marketed drugs. A session format is 1 hour lecture plus 1 hour participation-discussion. Full benefit is derived by use of your laptop/tablet with WiFi capability in class. Access to the internet for practice searches outside of class is recommended. Coordinator is not a health care provider; hence course will NOT give specific drug or medical information directly to participants. Instead, participants will gain skills they need to find meaningful information.
