Critical appraisal courses for psychiatrists

Critical appraisal courses for psychiatrists

We ran a bespoke critical appraisal course today for a group of psychiatrists in South Yorkshire. Bespoke courses are easy to organise and are a cost-effective way of training large numbers of people. We provide advertising flyers, CPD certificates and tailor the course material to the needs of the audience. Today's event was attended by Consultant Psychiatrists, trainee psychiatrists and GP trainees. We assumed no prior knowledge and taught critical appraisal from first principles. Practical advice was given on how to improve journal club presentations and the topics covered included those examined in the MRCPsych exams. Interactive digital handsets were used to test the delegates throughout the day. Delegates are given access to the Critical Appraisal Online Course to help them consolidate their new knowledge and skills.

Critical appraisal for the Intercollegiate Specialty Fellowship Examination (ISFE)

Critical appraisal for the Intercollegiate Specialty Fellowship Examination (ISFE)

Critical appraisal knowledge and skills are tested in the Intercollegiate Specialty Fellowship Examination (ISFE) for dental professionals. The critical analysis section consists of a written examination lasting 2 hours. Candidates are given reference material consisting of extracts from published research and other scientific publications, and sets of questions to which written answers are required. Many dental professionals attend our critical appraisal courses and workshops but we also run custom courses for the ISFE. We've just delivered a bespoke critical appraisal workshop lasting two days for a group of restorative dentists at Guy's Hospital, London. As well as going through the material common to all healthcare professionals, the workshop included appraising real dental research papers. Bespoke courses are tailor-made to your exact requirements and offer excellent value for money for groups of professionals. Contact us today to organise your own special event!

Critical Appraisal Workshop takes place in Leeds

In 2011 we ran a Critical Appraisal Masterclass in Leeds. In 2012 we returned to Leeds with the longer Critical Appraisal Workshop which took place this weekend. The event took place at the centrally located Hilton Leeds hotel, next to Leeds train station. All the delegates were doctors from a range of specialties, including psychiatry, emergency medicine and paediatrics. Over two days the knowledge and skills of critical appraisal were taught to the delegates, with exercises using real clinical papers. The feedback was excellent. We will be bringing the workshop back to Leeds in March 2013.
