Strategies to Improve Critical Thinking Skills

In this show, Raph speaks to Lars, a prolific advocate of evidence-based practice, critical thinking, and a passionate educator. We discuss several topics related to evidence-based practice and how to evaluate the research and dissect what it all means. We’re excited to share Lars’ words of wisdom about how to reflect on your own critical thinking and health literacy.
