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.
