Episode 159: Critical appraisal by and for dummies – PART I

PLAY/DOWNLOAD THIS PODCAST FOR FREE

In episode 159, Mike and James decide to tackle the issue of critical appraisal head on with a common-sense approach. We talk about why we need to do critical appraisal, how to save time by doing a quick scan of the abstract and how to search, identify, and deal with potential sources of bias. At the end we critique each other and find out that we are both packed full of bias but also loaded with high quality outcomes.
