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

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!
