Beginning the new year in Belgium

Beginning the new year in Belgium

After the festive break it was straight back to work for the team. We've been working with a pharmaceutical company to design a course to improve critical appraisal skills amongst senior employees. The one day event took place in Belgium and over fifty delegates attended. We spent the day understanding the core knowledge and concepts used in appraising papers and then practised on randomised controlled trials and meta-analyses. Face-to-face teaching allows us to offer a more personalised experience to the delegates. We're more than happy to answer questions as they arise and check everyone's understanding regularly. As a result we got excellent feedback from the workshop, with delegates starting the year with improved confidence in reading clinical papers. Job done!
