Critical Appraisal Practice Modules

  • Learn how to build a clinical question to help you search PubMed and other scientific databases.
  • After you have identified articles to answer your clinical question, you will want to appraise them to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses.
  • Critically appraising an article assesses the usefulness and validity of the findings and whether or not you can apply the research into your clinical practice.
  • We have provided instructions for how to approach the appraisal process for different types of articles.
  • For training purposes, we present clinical scenarios with selected articles as well as worksheets that outline a systematic method of critical appraisal.
  • Completed worksheets are also included as examples so you can check your answers as you develop your skills.
