This workshop is for members of the public who want to learn about understanding research, research evidence and how to decide what to believe or not.
Processed meat increases your risk of bowel cancer! Echinacea helps cure colds! Eating fruit reduces your risk of a heart attack!
We are bombarded by health stories in the news. Sometimes it is difficult to know what to believe.
This workshop is aimed at members of the public and is an introduction to understanding research, research evidence and how to decide what to believe or not. It is a fun and interactive session. No previous knowledge of research is needed and by the end you should feel better equipped to spot dodgy research reporting in the news.
