Critical Appraisal Workshop  

Critical Appraisal workshop delivers a comprehensive and practical overview of what is required to

understand and appraise clinical papers with confidence.

When a literature search is carried out, finding relevant results is only half the story.  Not all published research is of equal value or rigor.  In order to practice effective evidence-based healthcare, it is necessary to critically appraise any piece of research that you intend to use.  The workshop will include time for group discussion looking critically at a piece of research (paper circulated in advance via email, to be read before the session).
