Critical Appraisal Workshop arrives in Birmingham

Birmingham was the venue this weekend for the first Critical Appraisal Workshop outside London. In 2012 we are bringing our popular workshop to Birmingham, Leeds, Glasgow and Dublin. The format is exactly the same as the London workshops, with delegates given the knowledge and skills to read clinical papers with confidence and the opportunity to practice with exercises using real clinical papers. This workshop was also the first in which the new edition of The Doctor's Guide to Critical Appraisal was included in the delegate pack. Delegates included medical students, doctors and dentists, from a range of clinical specialties. The feedback comments at the end of the workshop were excellent and demonstrated how much benefit had been derived from attending the workshop. Thanks to everybody who attended and good luck to everyone taking exams! There is another workshop in Birmingham on 21-22 July 2012 - reserve your place now!

Critical Appraisal training in Orlando, Florida

Today we ran a critical appraisal skills course for a major pharmaceutical company at the Peabody hotel in Orlando, Florida. The training took the form of an interactive workshop session during the company's conference. Delegates were guided through the knowledge and skills of critical appraisal, with our course materials supplemented by real examples in the company's own medical research literature. This type of bespoke critical appraisal course makes up a large part of the work we do. We've worked with companies large and small to empower people to understand and communicate research evidence with more confidence. Our innovative approach and the high quality of our training materials are internationally recognised. Organising a bespoke critical appraisal course is easy - simply contact us with your ideas and requirements.

Brand new website for critical appraisal launches today

You've probably already noticed - the criticalappraisal.com website has had a makeover! The website has a cleaner, simpler look and the brand new logo is on prominent display. We've introduced many changes to optimise the user experience. Pages are smaller in size and load much faster. Fewer clicks are needed to navigate around the website and some pages have been removed or merged with others. Course information is presented more clearly and we've included more information on venues. We hope that you find the website both pleasing to the eye and highly functional. Our Facebook, Twitter and Google+ pages have also been updated with the new look. Send your feedback to us via the helpdesk!
