New critical appraisal course materials launched

New critical appraisal course materials launched

Today the postman delivered a very special package to our office! We took delivery of our brand new workbook that will be used in the Critical Appraisal Masterclass and Critical Appraisal Workshop. The workbook has doubled in size and is now in full colour, to make navigating it and reading it easier. However, the changes are not just cosmetic. We've listened to the feedback from our delegates and implemented every great idea! As a result, every page of the original workbook has been updated. The workbook is packed with more exercises than ever before. Over 50 excerpts from clinical papers are used to illustrate the key learning points to make critical appraisal easy to understand. References to The Doctor’s Guide to Critical Appraisal and the Critical Appraisal Online Course are included on every page. Both the award-winning book and access to the online course are included with course reservations. By not duplicating factual information from these two sources in the workbook, more room has been allocated to exercises. Our delegates love the interactive nature of our events and now that interactive element is significantly increased - no pun intended! It’s taken an incredible amount of time to perfect the workbook and we're very proud of the result. We can’t wait to see the reaction of delegates to the new learning materials! The new workbook will debut in the Critical Appraisal Workshops in Dubai and London later this month.

We returned to Sydney this weekend to deliver a sold-out Critical Appraisal Workshop. We chose a new venue for the workshop this time - the luxurious five star InterContinental Sydney overlooking the harbour. The comfortable surroundings and top class service enabled our delegates to concentrate on improving their critical appraisal knowledge and skills. Our delegates were rewarded for their hard work with regular refreshment breaks and lunch in the Cafe Opera, a fabulous restaurant set in breathtaking 19th century architecture. Needless to say, the feedback about the workshop was stunning! Thanks to everyone who attended!

Critical Appraisal Workshop takes place in Leeds

In 2011 we ran a Critical Appraisal Masterclass in Leeds. In 2012 we returned to Leeds with the longer Critical Appraisal Workshop which took place this weekend. The event took place at the centrally located Hilton Leeds hotel, next to Leeds train station. All the delegates were doctors from a range of specialties, including psychiatry, emergency medicine and paediatrics. Over two days the knowledge and skills of critical appraisal were taught to the delegates, with exercises using real clinical papers. The feedback was excellent. We will be bringing the workshop back to Leeds in March 2013.

Dublin hosts the Critical Appraisal Workshop

The Critical Appraisal Workshop took place in Dublin this weekend. The venue was the Radisson Blu hotel, a newly built deluxe hotel in the heart of Dublin city centre. Delegates were treated to a high quality service, with comfortable surroundings, delicious food and hot beverages. It's the first venue we've used where the meeting room itself is equipped with two coffee machines for the exclusive use of the delegates! The nightlife of Dublin provided the perfect wind down experience after the first day and everyone managed to make it to the second day of the workshop.

Critical Appraisal Workshop arrives in Birmingham

Birmingham was the venue this weekend for the first Critical Appraisal Workshop outside London. In 2012 we are bringing our popular workshop to Birmingham, Leeds, Glasgow and Dublin. The format is exactly the same as the London workshops, with delegates given the knowledge and skills to read clinical papers with confidence and the opportunity to practice with exercises using real clinical papers. This workshop was also the first in which the new edition of The Doctor's Guide to Critical Appraisal was included in the delegate pack. Delegates included medical students, doctors and dentists, from a range of clinical specialties. The feedback comments at the end of the workshop were excellent and demonstrated how much benefit had been derived from attending the workshop. Thanks to everybody who attended and good luck to everyone taking exams! There is another workshop in Birmingham on 21-22 July 2012 - reserve your place now!

Critical Appraisal Workshop lands in Sydney again

A sold out workshop took place this weekend at the Hilton Sydney, attended by delegates from a wide range of professional backgrounds. As usual the fantastic setting did not disappoint, with amazing culinary delights during the lunch and refreshment breaks. Between eating the delicious food and playing on Xbox 360 consoles in the lobby, a comprehensive review of critical appraisal knowledge and skills took place, supplemented by exercises on real clinical papers. The unique critical appraisal course handout and focus on practical tips generated excellent feedback. We'll be returning to Sydney in 2012 and watch out for a new Australian venue for the Critical Appraisal Workshop!

Critical Appraisal Workshop dates in 2012

The Critical Appraisal Workshop in London was a new addition to our range of training events in 2011. The opportunity to learn the knowledge and skills of critical appraisal and to practice critically appraising clinical papers under supervision made the workshop an instant hit! Due to its popularity and to reduce the cost of attending the workshop to people living outside London, we're pleased to announce that in 2012 the Critical Appraisal Workshop will also take place in Birmingham, Glasgow and Dublin. We've organised bespoke training courses in Ireland before but the two Dublin dates in 2012 are the first where anyone can attend. Reservations are now being accepted for the Critical Appraisal Workshops in 2012.

Critical Appraisal Workshop lands in Dubai, UAE

One hundred senior clinicians in Dubai attended Superego Cafe's Critical Appraisal Workshop on 5-6 April 2011. This was the third critical appraisal skills training event in three years and was an advanced course focusing on appraising real clinical papers. Over two days a collection of research articles were appraised, including cohort studies, case-control studies, randomised controlled trials and meta-analyses. Delegates were shown how to read clinical papers rapidly and make sense of data. The feedback was excellent and as a show of appreciation, we were presented with a trophy. Plans are already in place for another critical appraisal event.
