Rapid Critical Appraisal of Scientific Literature
by Assoc. Professor Sue Skull

Head of Research Education Program
Deputy Director of Department of Child Health Research, PMH

Friday, 4 May
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Attention all clinical staff!
“A 21st century clinician who cannot critically read a study is as unprepared as one who cannot take a blood pressure …..” Glasziou et al. BMJ 2008:337:704-705

Given the sheer volume and variable quality of published papers even in high impact journals, it is essential to have skills to target and rapidly appraise relevant literature to answer current clinical questions. 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.
