Welcome to the Health Research Readiness Modules

promotional poster for modules

Applying the latest research to a clinical question is a vital skill for any evidence-based practitioner. These five Health Research Readiness modules introduce you to essential health information resources and equip you with the skills to efficiently find, evaluate, and reference them.

Please note:

  • There is no time limit for completing each module, though most should take 30 - 45 minutes. 
  • Each module integrates quiz questions to test your understanding, and activities for hands-on practice.
  • All modules contain some audiovisual material which will require headphones.
  • You cannot save your progress.
  • At the end of each module, you will be able to enter an email address to receive your results. 


Please use the feedback form to comment on your experience using the modules and provide suggestions for improvement.
