Critical appraisal training in Dubai

The Critical Appraisal Company ran another successful Critical Appraisal Workshop in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, this week. This was our eighth event in Dubai! The workshop continues to be a popular choice for continuing professional development activity. Over 150 doctors and nurses from a range of clinical specialties attended the training event. Many delegates had been recommended the workshop by their colleagues but were unable to get places on the sold out events last year. This was the first event to use our new critical appraisal workbook that we launched earlier this month. The response was great! We received many positive comments about the excerpts from clinical papers used in the workbook. The focus on completing exercises to make sure delegates understood the essential concepts was a refreshing change for many delegates more used to didactic teaching methods. The event was also the first to use interactive handset technology in Dubai. We’ve been using this technology in the UK and Ireland since 2004 but never before in Dubai. Again, the interactive component of the workshop was appreciated by the delegates. Due to demand, the workshop will be repeated later this year.
