The Critical Appraisal Workshop covers everything you need to appraise clinical papers in two days. You will be taught critical appraisal knowledge and skills from first principles assuming no prior knowledge. We use real excerpts from research to illustrate the building blocks of clinical papers and then you get to practice your new knowledge and skills on real clinical papers.

Our comphrensive workshop covers a range of study designs, including cohort studies, case-control studies, randomised controlled trials, survival studies, diagnostic studies and systematic reviews / meta-analyses.

The target audience for the course includes doctors (all specialties, all grades), dentists, nurses, medical students and medical librarians. The course is popular amongst people revising for critical appraisal exams, preparing for job interviews, presenting in journal club meetings and starting research projects.
