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.

Doctors in Dublin receive training in critical appraisal skills

Immediately after our event in Belfast we were on a train to Dublin to train Specialist Registrars and newly appointed Consultants specialising in microbiology and haematology. The training event took place at the William Stokes Postgraduate Centre at St James's Hospital, Dublin. The key steps in appraising a journal article were taught and the delegates had the option of consolidating their learning by viewing the online 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!
