Studying in Slovenia

 Thursday 28 April 2016    Bespoke course | Slovenia


Studying in Slovenia

Senior clinicians came together in Ljubljana, the beautiful capital city of Slovenia, for a bespoke critical appraisal skills course. Our one day event built on existing knowledge and skills using focused teaching sessions supplemented with practical work on excerpts from real clinical papers. There was a real positive vibe in the course as the clinicians improved with the carefully chosen exercises. We have a massive bank of exercises that we can call upon for our bespoke courses, which means every event we do is truly tailored to the needs of the audience. Our trip to Slovenia was all too brief; there is so much to discover in Europe but so little time!

The interactive nature of the course was enhanced with the use of digital handsets to test the audience.

Training healthcare professionals in the Ministry of Health in UAE

This week we delivered a two day workshop on critical appraisal skills to the Ministry of Health UAE in the new Training and Development Centre in Sharjah, which is the third largest city (after Dubai and Abu Dhabi) in the United Arab Emirates. Delegates came from a variety of professional backgrounds but everyone had the common goal of wanting to improve their confidence reading clinical research papers. The event was interactive, with delegates completing a range of exercises to put their improved knowledge and skills to the test. Great hospitality by the organisers including al fresco dining in the sunny outdoors meant everyone was well looked after and could concentrate on the learning. Delegates left the course having covered a large amount of material and having definitely earned their CPD certificates.

Dubai workshop is the largest ever

 Monday 21 December 2015    Bespoke course | Medical students | United Arab Emirates


Dubai workshop is the largest ever

Our return to Dubai this month for a bespoke workshop was met with a record breaking attendance of over 250 delegates. We're happy to teach groups large and small and this was a large group! Indeed over the years we've developed a range of teaching approaches that help to keep everyone engaged. The doctors and medical students were taken through the knowledge and skills of critical appraisal over two intensive days. A custom workbook with a range of exercises and clinical papers was used together with interactive digital handsets to quiz the audience. The large group of medical students in attendance was an encouraging sign that the skill of understanding evidence was being prioritised in the medical school curriculum. We've been asked to return to Dubai in 2016 for three workshops and one of the events will be for medical students only.
