Critical appraisal is a universally useful skill, applicable during a literature review, while assessing an article you’ve found. In this 1.5 hour session, we’ll introduce you to why critical appraisal is important , specifically in the context of evidence synthesis reviews. Participants will be introduced to several critical appraisal tools to evaluate the risk of bias in individual studies and larger evidence synthesis reviews. We’ll also discuss how you may consider approaching critical appraisal in your own review, including how to find and create appropriate risk of bias tools.
