and RCEM eLearning Series 

Dr Ryan Hobbs talks us through how to (a) identify key information in scientific papers, (b) know where this information is commonly found in reputable journals, (c) put the information into a recognised summary format and (d) use the information to determine further action needed.

Critical Appraisal Module overview (see below for specific sections)

Dr Ryan Hobbs talks us through how to (a) how to define the measures used in EM research, (b) apply the measures to practice and (c) interpret the measures in the clinical scenario (i.e. the clinical bottom line).

RELATED RECEM eLEARNING:

Specificity

Sensitivity

Negative Predictive Value

Positive Predictive Values

Absolute Risk Reduction

Relative Risk

Accuracy

Dr Ryan Hobbs talks us through how to .(a) assess validity of diagnostic study, (b) identify key features of well conducted studies, (c) assess the findings of studies and (d) apply the findings of a study to practice (i.e. the clinical bottom line).

RELATED RCEM eLEARNING:

Likelihood Ratio of a Negative Test

Dr Ryan Hobbs talks us through how to (a) understand the basic concepts such as allocation concealment / randomisation / blinding / biases, (b) understand CONSORT principles / intent-to-treat analysis / per-protocol analysis, (c) interpretative results in respect to both clinical and statistical significance, (d) construct a succinct summary and (e) apply the results to clinical practice (i.e. the clinical bottom line).
