Kings Fund, London

Dr Narinder Gosall, one the course directors at The Critical Appraisal Company, gave a talk today on understanding research to the Microbiology consultants and specialist registrars at the Kings Fund. This was an excellent interactive session and focused on upskilling the group as well as assisting those students preparing for final FRCPath exit exam. The course was organised by a pharmaceutical company who invited Narinder in as a speaker for the masterclass. The bespoke course handout we used included several excerpts from real clinical research papers. Our courses are intensive but we aim to be comprehensive and cover everything that delegates need to know in every course. We use practical exercises to break up the day and keep everybody attentive!

Multidisciplinary teaching in Birmingham

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.

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!
