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.

Critical appraisal skills training in San Francisco

We took our critical appraisal training programme to San Francisco today to train medical specialists of a major pharmaceutical company. Critical appraisal skills are useful not only to clinicians reading clinical research papers but also to those involved with devising and carrying out research projects. A good understanding of critical appraisal inevitably leads to higher quality research, with a greater emphasis on good methodological practice and a focus on interpreting results in a way which is more meaningful to prescribers. 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.
