Research workshop for pharmaceutical sales representatives

 Thursday 13 October 2011    Australia | Bespoke course | Pharmaceutical


Research workshop for pharmaceutical sales representatives

On our first day in Sydney we ran a Critical Appraisal Bespoke Workshop for sales representatives at one of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies. Sales aids make use of research data to help products stand out in crowded market places. We have developed a range of unique training materials specifically for the pharmaceutical industry. The bespoke course today focused on improving understanding of key research concepts to help improve communication with healthcare professionals using a mixture of practical exercises and role play. The event was an outstanding success judging by the confidence exuding from the delegates by the end of the training. Well done everyone and happy selling!

Edinburgh hosts the Critical Appraisal Masterclass

The Caledonian Hilton in Edinburgh is the epitome of style and excellence and was the perfect venue for the Critical Appraisal Masterclass today. We insist on using high quality conference venues and the five star Caledonian Hilton didn't disappoint.The fantastic service allowed our delegates to focus on learning about critical appraisal, helped by regular helpings of tea and coffee and a delicious lunch. Delegates worked in a variety of specialties, including emergency medicine, surgery and dentistry, and travelled from as far away as Canada. The timing of the course in August also gave everyone the opportunity to experience the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the world's largest arts festival, taking place this weekend. We'll be returning to Scotland in 2012!

Critical appraisal training for dentists at Guy’s Hospital, London

 Monday 08 August 2011    Bespoke course | Dentistry


Critical appraisal training for dentists at Guy’s Hospital, London

Today we ran a Critical Appraisal Bespoke Course for dental professionals. The venue was Guy's Hospital in London, one of the most famous teaching hospitals in the world. Founded in 1721, the hospital is part of Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust and has an excellent reputation for healthcare. The Dental Institute is the largest dental teaching hospital in Europe and is a world leader in many areas of dental research. In preparation for the event, the delegates were given access to the Critical Appraisal Online Course. During the event today the delegates were guided through the core knowledge and skills of critical appraisal with methodological strengths and weaknesses illustrated with a selection of dental papers. Bespoke courses have a number of advantages for delegates. As well as being cheaper than attending the Critical Appraisal Masterclass or Workshop, delegates can choose the clinical papers to be appraised. Thanks to everyone for making the day so successful!

Critical Appraisal Workshop dates in 2012

The Critical Appraisal Workshop in London was a new addition to our range of training events in 2011. The opportunity to learn the knowledge and skills of critical appraisal and to practice critically appraising clinical papers under supervision made the workshop an instant hit! Due to its popularity and to reduce the cost of attending the workshop to people living outside London, we're pleased to announce that in 2012 the Critical Appraisal Workshop will also take place in Birmingham, Glasgow and Dublin. We've organised bespoke training courses in Ireland before but the two Dublin dates in 2012 are the first where anyone can attend. Reservations are now being accepted for the Critical Appraisal Workshops in 2012.

In 2012 we're pleased to hold an event in Cambridge for the first time. Home of the world's best university (ok, we're biased!), Cambridge in summer is a beautiful setting for an academic meeting. Come and join us - reservations are now being accepted.

Critical Appraisal Course in Cardiff

Critical Appraisal Course in Cardiff

After running events simultaneously in Australia and USA earlier this week, we added a third country in the same week with our first Critical Appraisal One Day Course in Cardiff, Wales. We chose the conveniently located Hilton Cardiff hotel as the venue, opposite the historic Cardiff Castle. In the comfortable surroundings of the hotel's conference area, delegates were given a comprehensive and practical tutorial on critical appraisal knowledge and skills. Our delegates came from a number of specialties, including emergency medicine, surgery, general medicine, paediatrics and dentistry. Delegates included doctors, researchers and medical students, and came from as far afield as Dublin and Paris. Most of the delegates were preparing for postgraduate exams but there were also a few interested in just improving their critical appraisal skills. The next Critical Appraisal One Day Course takes place in yet another country in August - Edinburgh, Scotland!

Australian Red Cross trained

Our expertise in critical appraisal skills training is widely recognised. Every week organisations worldwide contact us to help educate their employees. Bespoke critical appraisal training events are easy to arrange - a few emails and phone calls are all it takes, even for international events. A good example is the training event for the Red Cross organisation in Australia. Less than 5 months after the first email contact, ninety clinicians and scientists attended the critical appraisal workshop this week at the prestigious Grand Hyatt hotel in Melbourne. During the two day event, delegates gained the knowledge and skills of critical appraisal by completing short exercises and appraising real clinical papers. The feedback has been excellent.

We took our critical appraisal training programme to San Francisco today to train medical specialists of a major pharmaceutical company.

Our includes trainers from medical, pharmaceutical, academic, research and scientific backgrounds, so we are unique in our ability to cater for the differing demands of our customers. The bespoke course in San Francisco was organised within a few weeks and went without a hitch, generating great feedback comments.

In 2011 we are bringing the Critical Appraisal One Day Course to a wider audience with courses in new venues around the UK.
