While critically appraising papers has always been important, a recent increase in both preprints and published research (such as COVID-19-related studies) has made it even more essential to carefully evaluate study claims and methodology. HSLS is now offering “Online Introduction to Critical Appraisal” on Tuesday, June 30, from 1 p.m.-2:30 p.m. See the class description below to learn more.

Introduction to Critical Appraisal

Critical appraisal is an essential skill, one that helps readers detect whether a study’s results are valid and whether they can be applied clinically. This class will cover the basics of critically assessing studies, including study design, methods, bias, and other statistical considerations.

One week after the Introduction to Critical Appraisal class we will host a follow-up session (10 a.m.-11:30 a.m.) to review the hands-on exercise questions distributed during the class.

Registration for the class is now open. You only need to register once for both classes.
