Tertiary literature interprets and summarizes primary literature. The facts provided in tertiary literature are generally well accepted and evidence-based. These resources are a good place to search for basic information and a good starting point for more in-depth searches.
Tertiary resources can help guide your search for more detailed information.
At the end of this module, you should be able to:
- Categorize tertiary resources into categories (eg, monograph, drug interaction, etc)
- Identify differences between drug information references in the same category.
- Choose the most appropriate drug information resource(s) to reference when presented with a drug information question
The module is divided into four lessons. You may proceed through the lessons in any order, though a linear progression is recommended.
Practice questions appear at the end of each lesson. Your responses to these questions are not recorded or graded.
To begin, select a lesson from the menu on the left.
