Need to understand health research better? Not sure how to assess the quality of the research you have found? This new tool found on the Understanding Health Research website may help you.
It has been created, by Glasgow University’s social and public health sciences unit (and other collaborators) help people understand published health research and distinguish between “good” and “bad” studies.
The aims of the tool are to allow lay and professional audiences to understand how to assess the quality of research evidence, raise awareness of what evidence is and how it is generated, teach or reaffirm critical health literacy skills
