What is DISCERN?
DISCERN is a brief questionnaire which has been developed to help patients,
carers and other health information users assess the quality of written
consumer health information on treatment choices. It now takes the central
role in a new programme of interactive workshops developed in partnership by
DISCERN and the Critical Appraisal Skills Programme (CASP).
Currently available is full day training the trainer day which will be held
on 29 January 2001 at the British Library in London. This is aimed at health
professionals and will provide participants with the knowledge and skills
to deliver DISCERN workshops within their own organisations.
A full day programme will cover the main components of a standard 1/2 day
workshop, together with training/presentation tips and interactive
discussion sessions on the main issues. Participants will also have a chance
to practice certain elements of the workshop
The cost of this day is £120 including all materials and lunch.
The closing date for bookings is Friday the 12th January 2001.
