This is an advanced course on critical appraisal
for those who are interested in learning how to read and apply clinical
articles or those who are involved in teaching critical appraisal.
The course will be based on three to five scenarios and rounds of
using supplied articles to come to a clinical decision. Each round
of critical appraisal will be done using a different approach to
the process. At the end of the class, attendees will discuss the
benefits and harms of each of the ways of presenting critical appraisal.
