Skip to 0 minutes and 4 secondsSo this week we've been looking at two different things. First of all, we looked a good evidence-- how you find it. We gave you some handy hints and tips to help you along the way. In addition, we looked at risk and benefit-- the idea that when you have treatments it's not all about the benefit. It's also about the potential risks involved. In week 3 we're going to be looking in more detail at treatments. We're going to be considering what internal factors in the way that health research is conducted mean that you can judge how reliable that evidence is likely to be. We'll also be looking at a really interesting case study around the MMR-- Measles, Mumps, Rubella-- vaccine.
