Introduction to drug information begins by developing student proficiency in library skills for retrieval, analysis and application of primary, secondary and tertiary literature. Students will apply library and literature search skills to general drug information topics including: the approach to answering drug information questions, adverse drug event reporting, medication use evaluation and evidence-based medicine. Students will learn about clinical trial and real word study designs so they can understand the strengths and limitations to each design. Leveraging knowledge from PHAR 332 and combining drug information topics, study designs, students will be introduced to journal club, assess scientific literature and further be trained to critically evaluate the scientific literature so they can confidently present their review/findings in a professional clinical or academic setting.
