Understanding the evidence

Bite-sized sessions showing you how to critically appraise quantitative research and interpret medical statistics to inform patient care or service development.

Each session is stand-alone and focuses on a specific aspect of the process, allowing you to pick and choose the session most relevant to your needs.

Groups are kept small to ensure a friendly, relaxed environment with plenty of opportunities for you to ask questions and seek clarification.

  • Understanding the evidence: Identifying Study designs
  • Understanding the evidence: Recognising bias
  • Understanding the evidence: Interpreting statistics

Full-day workshops on Understanding the evidence are planned for 2020.

Places for our on-site teaching are limited to comply with social-distancing guidance but you can also access these sessions online if preferred.

Dates which are taught online only (using tools such as WebEx) are listed separately . You will be contacted with more details when you book onto a specific session. Contact bsuh.library@nhs.net  if you have any queries.
