Conference Description:

The critical appraisal classroom course by Superego Cafe has rapidly established itself as a leading course on the practice of evidence-based medicine. Our unique back-to-basics approach has enabled us to teach this subject effectively to a wide range of healthcare professionals. Most of our delegates are doctors but past delegates have also included dentists, pharmacists, nurses, researchers, medical librarians, managers and members of the pharmaceutical industry.

Learning objectives:

* Define ‘evidence-based medicine’ and discuss the importance of critical appraisal skills
* Identify different study designs and demonstrate an awareness of the hierarchy of research evidence
* Evaluate the methodology of any study for strengths and weaknesses
* Explain how to choose a statistical test for data analysis and be able to interpret the results in any research paper
* Calculate clinically useful statistics from results data
* Decide whether to change clinical practice based on results
