Critical appraisal skills training in Hyderabad, India

Hyderabad is the capital city of the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. During the 1990s the city emerged as a centre for pharmaceutical companies, earning it the title of India's pharmaceutical capital. This week it was the location of our latest Critical Appraisal Bespoke Course. Critical appraisal skills are important for medical writers in pharmaceutical companies, allowing them to accurately communicate the strengths and weaknesses of research findings to a wider audience. The training event over two days focused not only on covering the knowledge of critical appraisal using our short exercises workbook and The Doctor's Guide to Critical Appraisal book but also on the practical application of that knowledge. We always include practical work in our training events and this event was no exception. Delegates evaluated research evidence and presented their conclusions in an interactive session. The standard of the presentations improved as the delegates became more familiar with the language of critical appraisal and by the end of the event everyone was reading clinical papers with more confidence! It doesn't matter where in the world you are - if you need to improve your critical appraisal skills, we can help! Thanks to the team in Hyderabad for the wonderful hospitality!
