Dubai is a great place to teach, with everyone keen to learn and lots of interesting questions for the course tutors. We enjoyed our time there very much!

Critical Appraisal Workshop lands in Sydney again

A sold out workshop took place this weekend at the Hilton Sydney, attended by delegates from a wide range of professional backgrounds. As usual the fantastic setting did not disappoint, with amazing culinary delights during the lunch and refreshment breaks. Between eating the delicious food and playing on Xbox 360 consoles in the lobby, a comprehensive review of critical appraisal knowledge and skills took place, supplemented by exercises on real clinical papers. The unique critical appraisal course handout and focus on practical tips generated excellent feedback. We'll be returning to Sydney in 2012 and watch out for a new Australian venue for the Critical Appraisal Workshop!

The bespoke event covered the key topics in critical appraisal with short exercises to help consolidate understanding of key concepts. Thanks to everyone for the kind hospitality and for contributing to the discussions. We hope we made critical appraisal easy to understand!

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.
