Critical appraisal lecture tour continues in Sydney

After a short flight from our training event in Brisbane, The Critical Appraisal Company landed in Sydney. A one day course was held for employees of the National Prescribing Service followed by a one day course for the Red Cross Blood Service. The weekend was spent at the InterContinental Sydney where we ran our 10th Critical Appraisal Workshop over two days. It's been an exhausting but exhilarating week! It always gives us immense satisfaction to see people understanding the language of critical appraisal and applying their skills on short exercises and clinical papers. This was the first time we used our new short exercises workbook and clinical papers workbook in Australia and the feedback comments were excellent! We're already planning our next workshop in Sydney in 2014. Enquiries are welcome for bespoke courses.

The Critical Appraisal Company ran a bespoke critical appraisal training event today for the Red Cross Blood Service in Brisbane in Queensland, Australia.

Delegates were guided through the knowledge and skills of critical appraisal in a one day course that lasted six hours. After the event all the delegates were given complimentary access to the Critical Appraisal Online Course to help them consolidate their learning. This Red Cross event is to be repeated later this week in Sydney.

10th Critical Appraisal Workshop in Sydney announced

We are pleased to announce that the Critical Appraisal Workshop is returning to Sydney, Australia, in October 2013. This is our tenth workshop in Sydney! We’ve chosen to run the workshop at the fabulous InterContinental Hotel again, which is conveniently close to transport links and overlooks the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. The InterContinental has a sensational internal courtyard and beautifully restored meeting rooms, creating a most comfortable learning environment. Expect to be pampered! The last sold-out event in Sydney was attended by healthcare professionals from a range of clinical specialties and the feedback was excellent. The new critical appraisal workbook will be used in the workshop to make this the most comprehensive workshop on critical appraisal knowledge and skills available to Australians. We’ve kept the price unchanged although the rising strength of the Australian Dollar makes the workshop an absolute bargain! Reserve your place soon!

Critical appraisal course in Melbourne

The ancient Mayan calendar may have predicted that the world would end in December 2012 but that didn't stop us from running a Critical Appraisal Bespoke Course at the Sebel Hotel in Melbourne, Australia. The event was organised by the Palliative Care Clinical Studies Collaborative (PaCCSC) as a free post-conference workshop after the Palliative Care Nurses Australia (PCNA) 2012 Conference. Content from our two day workshop together with clinical papers was packed into one day. A lot of material was covered and all the delegates were given free access to the Critical Appraisal Online Course for three months to help consolidate their knowledge and skills, on the assumption that the Mayan calendar had got it all wrong!

Critical appraisal training for guideline writers

Critical appraisal training for guideline writers

We ran a bespoke critical appraisal course today for a group of people involved with writing healthcare guidelines. The National Prescribing Service in Australia provides practical tools and information about medicines, health conditions and medical tests, helping individuals make better decisions about their health and medicines and keep health professionals up to date with the latest evidenced-based information. One of the most important steps involved in writing any guideline is to appraise the research evidence to determine which findings should influence the recommendations. This involves understanding the strengths and weaknesses in research methods and how to calculate meaningful statistics from the results. The course today helped everyone to update their knowledge and skills and to have questions about the process of critical appraisal answered!
