Critical appraisal for dentists in Sheffield

Health Education Yorkshire and the Humber funded a critical appraisal study day for dentists in Sheffield this week. The course was attended by dental professionals from Sheffield, Leeds, Birmingham and Liverpool, including specialists in orthodontics, restorative dentistry and oral medicine. The seniority of the delegates ranged from those new to the specialty to those preparing for the ISFE exam. We used a bespoke course workbook to illustrate concepts using excerpts from real clinical papers and we tested the delegates throughout the day using wireless handsets. The interactive approach is key characteristic of our training courses and helps delegates stay involved and understand their own strengths and weaknesses.

Multidisciplinary teaching in Birmingham

It was back to Birmingham today for another bespoke training session. Doctors, pharmacists and clinical laboratory staff from all over the country were brought together for a medical training day. Specialties represented included ICU, anaesthesia, haematology and microbiology. With more and more evidence published every year and increasing patient expectations, being able to identify the strengths and weaknesses of research is a skill every healthcare professional should master. The core knowledge is generic and applicable to research in every clinical specialty and profession. It’s only at the end of a critical appraisal when the discussion turns to clinical significance and the impact on patients that specialist knowledge about the current state of play is valuable. To underline the educational importance of the training, the event was accredited for CPD by the Royal College of Physicians.

Bespoke courses in Birmingham and London

This week The Critical Appraisal Company delivered two bespoke courses. First we ran a one day course for a group of ICU doctors in Birmingham. The next day we ran an evening meeting for a group of haematologists in London. Our bespoke critical appraisal courses are easy to organise and allow large numbers of doctors to be trained in the workplace. No time is spent travelling to a conference venue and study leave budgets are saved. We’re also flexible on the timing of the course. For example, we were happy to run an evening meeting so more doctors could attend after a normal working day. With all these benefits, it’s no wonder that our bespoke course service is an increasingly popular choice for groups of doctors.
