Once you have identified a research study, you should appraise it for its validity, currency and applicability.  This is particularly important in the health sciences where poorly conducted research may potentially have a negative impact on patient outcomes. It is also an important skill to utilise in research, to ensure your research is based only on the highest quality studies.

This session will include an introduction to critical appraisal skills and a brief recap of the key study design elements of systematic reviews. This will be followed by a practical appraisal of a systematic review using a validated appraisal checklist.

This session is also part of the Doctoral School Skills Development programme. Postgraduate research students at UCL should book a place by logging in via the programme website.
