Critical appraisal training in California

Today in San Francisco we delivered a training session on critical appraisal skills to delegates working in a major pharmaceutical company. As well as going over key concepts, delegates were taken through real research papers to put their skills into practice. Adopting an interactive approach is important as it helps to illustrate what can otherwise be difficult-to-grasp concepts. We produced a bespoke course booklet for this event which contained a range of short exercises to supplement the clinical papers. It was a short visit to sunny California but it was great to see the confidence in the room improve as the session progressed.

Critical appraisal training in San Francisco

We are in San Francisco this week running a training session at a conference. The conference delegates already have access to the Critical Appraisal Online Course so this bespoke event is entirely focused on rapidly appraising a collection of clinical papers. Giving delegates prior access to the core training materials is a popular option with bespoke events because conference time is a precious commodity. Delegates can study the online course at their leisure to learn the core knowledge and then use our tutor's expertise at the conference to improve their understanding. As the delegates know the basic facts, we can cover more advanced material in the training session. It's a win-win situation for everyone. And yes, the weather is better than back in the UK!

Today we ran a critical appraisal skills course for a major pharmaceutical company at the Peabody hotel in Orlando, Florida. The training took the form of an interactive workshop session during the company's conference. Delegates were guided through the knowledge and skills of critical appraisal, with our course materials supplemented by real examples in the company's own medical research literature. This type of bespoke critical appraisal course makes up a large part of the work we do. We've worked with companies large and small to empower people to understand and communicate research evidence with more confidence. Our innovative approach and the high quality of our training materials are internationally recognised.

Critical appraisal skills training in San Francisco

We took our critical appraisal training programme to San Francisco today to train medical specialists of a major pharmaceutical company. Critical appraisal skills are useful not only to clinicians reading clinical research papers but also to those involved with devising and carrying out research projects. A good understanding of critical appraisal inevitably leads to higher quality research, with a greater emphasis on good methodological practice and a focus on interpreting results in a way which is more meaningful to prescribers. Our includes trainers from medical, pharmaceutical, academic, research and scientific backgrounds, so we are unique in our ability to cater for the differing demands of our customers. The bespoke course in San Francisco was organised within a few weeks and went without a hitch, generating great feedback comments.
