About this course
Wanting to get more out of reading journal articles? Want to set up journal club in your practice? This course will cover the approach to sourcing literature, critically appraising journal articles and how to set up your own journal club.

Typical journal clubs focus on simply summarising findings of an article and are designed to raise awareness of recent literature. This 5-week Webinar Plus course will develop the approach to critically evaluating journal articles and involve an in-depth discussion by tutors and delegates on selected articles relevant to small animal practice with a bias toward emergency medicine. Articles will be selected to cover different aspects of small animal practice (e.g. surgery, diagnostic imaging, internal medicine and emergency and critical care). Tutors will critically evaluate articles for their merits and limitations and involve delegates in that process. Discussion forums will explore each article to a higher level focusing on critical analysis rather than summary of findings. Delegates will then be able to set up journal clubs in their own practices that use the outlined approach.

Why do this course?
Delegates will be guided in an approach to critical analysis and appraisal of published veterinary literature. This will involve understanding principles of study design, basic statistical methods and integration of evidence into practice. By using the described approach delegates will be able to set up journal clubs in their own practices and make best use of the literature to guide clinical decision making.
