Making Sense of Evidence Workshops

Do you want to use quality evidence in your practice but struggle to find the time?

Our workshops will help you learn about finding and making sense of evidence efficiently and effectively.

We recognise that everyone has different starting points so we tailor the programme accordingly and offer a progression of workshops.

The workshops are modelled on those run at the Centre for Evidence Based Practice in Oxford and are subsidised by PenCLAHRC. 

Our workshops include:

  • Formulating a focused question
  • Tracking down and organising the best evidence
  • Gain experience of critically appraising the evidence
  • Understand the application of evidence in practice
  • Evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of your educational process
