Understanding Evidence-based Healthcare: A Foundation for Action
This Spotlight Session on the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration), a supplemental module for the online course Understanding Evidence-Based Healthcare: A Foundation for Action, has been created by the United States Cochrane Center as part of a project undertaken by Consumers United for Evidence-based Healthcare (CUE). It is designed to help users understand the history of drug regulation and the fundamentals of how drugs are approved in the US.

Understanding Evidence-based Healthcare: A Foundation for Action – Course for Physicians
We have developed a free of charge online course on journal peer review, Translating Critical Appraisal of a Manuscript into Meaningful Peer Review, to serve as a resource for health professionals who are serving or wish to serve as peer reviewers of the biomedical literature. Because this course was funded by the NEI, we have specifically oriented the Workshop to ophthalmologists, optometrists, and other vision practitioners, mainly based in the US.
