Glasgow hosts the first Critical Appraisal Course in Scotland

In 2011 we are bringing the Critical Appraisal One Day Course to a wider audience with courses in new venues around the UK. On 16 April 2011 the Glasgow Hilton hosted the first Critical Appraisal One Day Course in Scotland. We choose conference venues that look after our delegates well and the Glasgow Hilton didn't disappoint. Centrally located in Glasgow, the hotel offered a meeting room which benefited from receiving plenty of natural light which gave the meeting a fresh, airy atmosphere. Delegates who came from a range of backgrounds, including surgery, medicine and public health, were taken through the principles of critical appraisal over an intensive 8 hours. The feedback was excellent and yes, we agree, the lunch was fantastic! There is another event in Scotland in Edinburgh in August and there'll be another Critical Appraisal One Day Course in Glasgow in 2012.

Critical Appraisal Workshop lands in Dubai, UAE

One hundred senior clinicians in Dubai attended Superego Cafe's Critical Appraisal Workshop on 5-6 April 2011. This was the third critical appraisal skills training event in three years and was an advanced course focusing on appraising real clinical papers. Over two days a collection of research articles were appraised, including cohort studies, case-control studies, randomised controlled trials and meta-analyses. Delegates were shown how to read clinical papers rapidly and make sense of data. The feedback was excellent and as a show of appreciation, we were presented with a trophy. Plans are already in place for another critical appraisal event.
