Critical appraisal training in Paris

We ran our first critical appraisal training event in Paris, France this week. The bespoke course was for an international group of senior medical managers of a pharmaceutical company. Managers from several European countries were brought together for an intensive day of evidence-based medicine training. The focus was on understanding the strengths and weaknesses of the latest research in their specialist clinical area. Bespoke courses like this allow organisations to benefit from the teaching provided by our company and use clinical papers of their choice to illustrate key concepts. By the end of the event several papers had been evaluated and the delegates had an improved understanding of the possible impact of the clinical papers.

Evidence-based nursing workshop in Dubai attracts 200 nurses

The record-breaking attendance of our Critical Appraisal Workshop in Dubai was immediately matched by 200 nurses who attended our Evidence-Based Nursing Made Easy Workshop, which took place over the last two days in Dubai, UAE. The workshop focused on introducing the knowledge and skills of critical appraisal and included practical sessions on audits, research protocols and qualitative studies. The focus throughout the workshop was on improving the patient experience, a task that nursing staff are well positioned for as they spend most time with the patient. The feedback was great and we hope we have instilled a desire to keep with the latest evidence and to be the best in those who attended!

Critical Appraisal Workshop breaks attendance record in Dubai

Today we completed a critical appraisal workshop in Dubai, UAE. This event was our biggest ever, with 200 doctors, dentists, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals learning the knowledge and skills of critical appraisal over two intensive days. We've held courses for senior medical staff before in Dubai which have received great feedback. This event was open to more professionals and proved to be very popular. There's a a great sense of satisfaction on our part knowing that a new cohort of healthcare professionals now feel comfortable reading research papers. Critical appraisal can be made difficult to understand but we aim to make it simple. The feedback we received after this critical appraisal workshop suggests we're succeeding where others have failed! We're planning to return to Dubai in October 2012 to repeat this workshop to give those who couldn't make it this time an opportunity to experience our unique approach.
