Time to refresh Critical Appraisal research skills in Zurich

20th Nov 2013 |

Today The Critical Appraisal Company was in Zurich, Switzerland, delivering a critical skills training update to senior managers of a pharmaceutical company.

Critical appraisal is a vast topic area and it's important to revisit even basic concepts regularly in order to not overlook areas where weaknesses in research methodology may arise. Indeed it's only by being constantly challenged that we all can recognise areas where we need to improve.

The format of the training update was interactive, with questions being posed on a range of topics. Examples of strengths and weaknesses were gleaned from a range of clinical papers.
