Information Sources Assignment – What is the difference between primary and secondary sources in the health sciences?

Complete the Unit 4 Information Sources Assignment: After reviewing the readings/tutorials, answer the following questions in a double-spaced Word or PDF document with your name in the document and the file name (i.e. ‘SmithInfoSources’). Include references and in-text citations as needed. Be clear and concise to fit the word count! (150-300 words,* 15 points)

What is the difference between primary and secondary sources in the health sciences? Provide at least one solid example** of a primary and secondary source (in the health sciences) and explain a situation in which it would be useful to use each one. Consider the types of sources identified in the information cycle. Is any type of resource 100% trustworthy? Why or why not? Defend your argument(s) using readings/tutorials content as needed. (Include APA in-text citations and references as needed- you must use a minimum of 1 source from the assigned readings /tutorials) *Word count includes any in-text citations but does not include your reference list. **”One solid example” means a type/genre of primary and secondary source in the health sciences. In another field, this might look like “Anne Frank’s diary is a primary source, while screenplays, scripts, films, plays about the Holocaust are secondary sources”… and then explain why each would be useful. You can provide a specific example (i.e. The Diary of Anne Frank), or just provide a type of source that would represent primary/secondary (i.e. a dramatic film).  Please note: the references included in the ‘Readings/Tutorials’ section are not always 100% in APA format, so do not copy/paste them into your assignments. Sources: :use this for primary vs secondary literature in biomedical sciences.
