Hyatt Regency, DHA, Dubai

Back to Dubai! 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. Delegates left the course having covered a large amount of material and having definitely earned their CPD certificates.

Superego Café celebrated its 19th anniversary this April. Thank you to all the members at DHA for celebrating with us on the 19th Critical Appraisal event at DHA. Our return to Dubai this month for a bespoke workshop was met with an attendance of medical experts, nurses, pharmacists and dentists. The delegates 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 pre and post critical appraisal tests. The events this year were held at the Hyatt Regency and we included a new format that included basic statistics for doctors followed by ‘how to critically appraise your clinical papers’.
