Friday 13 October

“A 21st century clinician who cannot critically read a study is as unprepared as one who cannot take a blood pressure or examine the cardiovascular system.” Glasziou et al. BMJ 2008:337:704-705
Given the sheer volume of published papers and their variable quality even in high impact journals, having skills to carefully appraise scientific literature to answer current clinical questions is key.
This seminar provides simple strategies to help focus your reading, examine validity of results, and decide whether to accept and apply them in your setting.
