The workshop "Medicine facing challenges of infodemic: in search of accurate information" took place on February 27, at School of Medicine, for its students, as well as for those of undergraduate study Communications and Media, led by prof. Victorija Car Ph.D.

This education is part of activities in the project "Checking accuracy of information on health", which is worth €198,824.95, financed by European Union - "NextGenerationEU", as part of the measure "Establishment of the verification of media facts and the system of public data publication" (NPOO C1.1.1. R6-I2), implemented by Ministry of Culture and Media and the Agency for Electronic Media.

Project manager is assoc. prof. Tina Poklepović Peričić Ph.D. (MEFST), and project holders: University of Split, School of Medicine with partners Clinical Hospital Center Split, Mediterranean Institute for Life Research and Croatian Association of Women in University. It aims to improve existing procedures and methodology for checking information accuracy; establishing a new platform to publish verified information from the field of health and medicine; also to educate people working in media, as well as students of journalism and communication.

Assoc. prof. Poklepović Perićić, as part of the education, gave the lecture "How to make informed decisions about health?", Danira Matijaca Ph.D., from Central Medical Library at MEFST, "Information disorders in the virtual sphere: trends and suppression", Miro Vuković, Centre for evidence-based medicine at MEFST, talked about "Where do we look for knowledge?", and Luka Ursić, Centre for evidence-based medicine at MEFST, about "Crisis of reproducing in science - what does it mean when research cannot be repeated?".

COVID-19 pandemic led to the spread of a lot of misinformation (including simply wrong information and fake news), which is why World Health Organization, in addition to the pandemic, also declared an infodemic in 2020. The above was one of reasons for launching the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine in 2018, as part of the MEFST, also acting as factchecker relating to health.
