Critical appraisal training for oncologists in Manchester

This week we ran a bespoke critical appraisal skills training course for a group of oncology specialist registrars at The Christie, Manchester - the largest single site cancer centre in Europe treating more than 44,000 patients a year. As a centre of excellence, The Christie focuses on improving outcomes for oncology patients and that means applying the latest evidence that makes a difference to patients. The Critical Appraisal Company delivered a training event with the content tailored to the needs of oncologists. This is a great benefit of our bespoke events - the clinical papers used to practice the knowledge and skills of critical appraisal can be selected by the course organiser, so that the course is more relevant to the needs of the audience. We can work with papers from any clinical specialty so get in touch to order your own course!

Bespoke training in Belfast

Today we taught critical appraisal skills in Belfast at the Royal Victoria Hospital, one of four linked hospitals that makes up Northern Ireland's biggest and best known hospitals complex. Almost two thirds of the Northern Ireland population live within 40 minutes travel of the 70 acre site which is situated close to Belfast city centre. Consultants and junior doctors working in the microbiology and haematology departments made up the audience for the half-day course. The training was backed up with access to the Critical Appraisal Online Course. Bespoke courses are a cost-effective way of training groups of doctors - request your event today!
