EXPERT WITNESS WEBINAR: The ABCs of Writing and Information Searching

This webinar is intended for EXPERTS ONLY

TASA ID: 4620

NOTE: This webinar is intended for EXPERTS ONLY. This webinar is $35 to obtain the archived recording and Powerpoint.

The accuracy of expert reports is paramount; however, accuracy goes hand-in-hand with well-written reports and reputable and applicable references (not fly-by-night webpages or publications).

There is certainly more to learn in the area of writing than in the span of an hour. But there are basic principles to lay the groundwork for writing and citing references well when putting together your expert report. This short lecture will focus on basic writing skills (ones you may have forgotten from the 5th grade!), the top 10 mistakes spellchecking software won’t catch, spell-check add ons (for those who want spellcheckers do some extra work), plagiarism (it’s not just a word-for-word offense), information searching (in common search engines and in databases like PubMed), how to critically evaluate references (and how to properly cite them),  and an overview of referencing software (for those who cite more than a couple of references and want to make moving around sentences as painless as possible).

Dr. Muller is a medical writer and although a portion of the program will refer to medical/scientific databases and search terms, the content of the course is applicable to non-medical/scientific experts as well.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identifying five common pitfalls in writing and how to avoid them
  2. Listing three ways to identify reputable references
  3. Describing the different styles of citing references
  4. Listing the steps for conducting an online information search
  5. Naming two databases for medical or drug information resources
