Health Services and Policy Research (HSPR) is a rapidly growing research area that addresses medical justice, social determinants of health, and disparities in healthcare outcomes. Finding HSPR information takes you beyond commercial and clinical databases into resources, databases, and grey literature that most health sciences librarians are unfamiliar with and which offer unique searching challenges.

You’ll learn how to develop and execute multi-pronged strategies for locating information from government, think tanks, and other sources that cannot be searched systematically. You’ll leave the course confident in your new searching skills and able to contribute to a rapidly growing area of health services research and policy.
