Instant Evidence Based Medicine: How to Critically Appraise Research
1 day course - Tuesday 17th September 2019

*Overview:* This course will look at how to understand and appraise
research articles. We will learn how to quickly read a paper and grasp its
key findings, how to interpret and understand key data, how to appraise a
paper’s methods and assess its usefulness and value. We will look at
‘internal validity’ - how close the research has got to the ‘truth’, and
‘external validity’ - can the research be usefully applied in our own work
situation? Overall the course aims to help you become a better user of
research.

During the day we will look at a typical healthcare scenario where evidence
could inform decision making, then appraise a paper - looking for key
findings and assessing its suitability and applicability to the scenario.
We will also look at numerous tools available to help with the appraisal
process.
*Who will benefit from the course?*

Anyone who uses or would like to use research more in their work, or who
would like to
build quickly build confidence in reading and interpreting research,
including:

● Academics & Researchers
● Health and social care clinicians/practitioners
● Post graduate students
● Health Librarians and Information Specialists

*Early bird booking rates for this course will close on 17th July 2019. *


*Standard booking will close on 3rd September 2019. *

Advanced Simulation Methods
3 day course - Tuesday 1st - Thursday 3rd October 2019
*Overview:* Within healthcare decision making, cohort Markov models and
decision trees are frequently used. However, in some situations these are
not the most appropriate modelling methods. This course provides an
in-depth review of individual-level simulationrationale, techniques and
methodologies with a particular focus on discrete event simulation and its
practical application to inform healthcare decision making. From the
fundamentals of a basic model the course will progress to modelling complex
systems, verification and interpreting output, as well as exploring
alternative software options.

This course aims to provide participants with the skills required to be
able to undertake simulation projects to a professional level. It will be
both theoretically-based and practically-based, with the use of the Simul8
software package. It will cover the use of discrete-eventsimulation to
assess the impact of alternative options within a local system with
resource constraints and the use of patient-level simulation for health
economic modelling.

This course is primarily for health economic modellers who want to broaden
their skill base, as well as healthcare decision makers who would like to
understand more about patient-level simulation and when it might be useful.

*Early bird booking rates for this course will close 1st August 2019. *

*Standard booking will close on 17th September 2019. *
