Workshop description:
Pharmacology questions are complex and intimidating. This workshop will
teach you how to effectively handle questions and find information
concerning drugs and their usage. Topics to be covered include: 

*	how to identify the various names and codes that can be used to
refer a specific drug
*	the concept of pharmacologic actions and how these can be used to
help answer questions
*	how to break down a question into the specific aspects of a drug's
identity, usage, regulation, and economic potential. 

This training will also review print and electronic drug information
resources available to librarians and the general public, and identify the
strengths and weaknesses of each one to answer the specific aspects
mentioned above.

Workshop participants will receive 4 Medical Library Association continuing
education contact hours that can be applied to a Consumer Health Information
Specialization - http://www.mlanet.org/education/chc/
