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.
