As one clear sign of how we want to help improve the flow of health care information – not just criticize things we see that are communicated inadequately – we've built a section of HealthNewsReview.org called The Toolkit. We plan to continue to add to the Toolkit as time permits and we welcome your nominations for topics you'd like to see addressed.

We think that journalists and consumers can learn from reading the collection of primers, backgrounders, and links that we've gathered there.

The Tips For Understanding Studies include:

A collection of other resources for evaluating claims & analyzing news coverage

Our list of independent experts – which, by the way, will soon be updated – is meant to help journalists who may not know where to find non-conflicted sources for their stories.

We welcome your feedback, suggestions, and nominations for new tools we can build.

Announcements

The 2017 California Fellowship, for California-based journalists only, will be held March 5-9, 2017 in Los Angeles. This Fellowship will focus on vulnerable populations and access to care and health care reform and innovation. We also take an in-depth look at how community conditions influence individuals' prospects for health. Each Fellow receives a $1,000 stipend to assist with the costs of reporting an ambitious Fellowship project on a California health issue, as well as six months of mentoring by a Senior Fellow. Deadline to apply is Dec. 1. For more information, go here.

Our health care system commits tremendous resources to extending life but comparatively little to end-of-life planning and care that honors patients’ wishes. This webinar will give an overview of the problem, identify changes to our health care system that might help, and offer insights on how journalists might spur more conversations on how we approach death in America. Find info and register here.
