"Clinical trials show..."
"A clinical practice guideline recommends..."
"Statistically significant results demonstrate..."
Health care professionals, policy-makers, and patients alike are bombarded with information and statements like this on a daily basis. With limited time but an abundance of studies, how can we make sense of it all? Do you turn to various interpretations of the literature, but wonder if they are truly relevant to your setting? Do you wish you could assess published papers for yourself, but don't know where to start or what questions to ask? Join CADTH for an introductory hands-on workshop that will enhance your knowledge of, and confidence with, critical appraisal. This session will explain several different types of published research and highlight the most important things to look for when determining the quality of studies. A significant portion of the workshop will be dedicated to applying and practicing critical appraisal skills in small groups. Sample papers will be circulated in advance, and participants will need to pre-read the papers in preparation for interactive discussions. Geared to health care professionals, decision-makers, and patients needing quick-assessment skills to evaluate scientific papers, this workshop will appeal to anyone who wants to gain an introductory comfort in interpreting medical literature.
