ClinicalTrials.gov: Results Reporting, Unique Evidence & the Role of the Medical Librarian
Dec 7, 2017
11:00AM - 12:00PM ET
ClinicalTrials.gov is the openly available federal registry and results database of publicly and privately funded clinical studies conducted in the United States and around the world. ClinicalTrials.gov is a vital resource for researchers, healthcare providers, and health sciences librarians who wish to consult the entire body of evidence on any particular topic. The 4 credit Moodle course is divided into three modules that contain PowerPoint lectures, reading assignments, and discussion assignments. The 1 credit webinar covers the materials in a survey format with polls and exercises.
Participants will be able to:
- Learn about the significance of ClinicalTrials.gov
- Search and interpret the results database
- Be informed about the number of study records with results, and
- Learn how health sciences librarians can advocate to clinical researchers the importance of complying with the results submission requirements mandated by federal law.
This course has been approved for 1 or 4 hours of Medical Library Association Continuing Education Units. 4 hours is for the Moodle course; 1 hour is for the webinar.
