We attended a workshop at Senate House, London to teach critical appraisal skills to HIV trainees. The course was aimed at upskilling clinicians on how to appraise clinical papers objectively. A selection of clinical papers were used for the practical application. The course was organised by a pharmaceutical company who invited Narinder in as a speaker for the masterclass.
