Evaluative Research in Healthcare, A primer in surveys, Survey
sample size, Surveillance
This page http://www.pitt.edu/~super1/assist/topicsearch.htm
lists a bunch in epi
For some reason, my browser doesn't like Pitt, so you need to
copy and paste the links to your browser.
However, the good, the bad, the ugly of the Supercourses:
1. All the slideshows list the authors so you can
check up on them.
2. Many of the slideshows are on epi and research
methods, and are easy to find.
3. Many pages on the Pitt supercourse brings up
some pop up and pop under ad.

Rick Davies lists evaluation slideshows from slideshare
and I first learned about slideshare from his posting on the

2. No pop ups.
3. There are tons of slideshows on all sorts of
4. Many of the slideshows have no information
about the authors.
5. Again, there are tons of slideshows on all
sorts of topics. The problem is its hard to find stuff related to
