September Journal Club
14th September 2021 @ 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM BST
IIRRM Journal Club sessions provide a critical appraisal of published research relevant to the field of Restorative Reproductive Medicine. These sessions are designed to increase providers’ competence to critically evaluate research by increasing their knowledge of the scientific method, research design, and common biases. Improvements in knowledge and competence will translate into improvements in clinician performance as they use their understanding of research to provide better care and communication to their patients and apply the results from research to clinical practice.
- locate, appraise, and assimilate evidence in scientific studies related to Restorative Reproductive Medicine
- evaluate the hypothesis, the study design, the method and the results in a systematic fashion.
- apply knowledge learned in journal clubs, of study designs and statistical methods, to the appraisal of clinical studies and other information on diagnostic and therapeutic effectiveness
- determine the clinical applicability of a particular study to RRM practice
- apply this knowledge to improve knowledge, competency, performance, and patient outcomes in RRM
- identify gaps in the field of RRM and opportunities for future research
The research article will be posted and emailed prior to the webinar. You can download a note-taking sheet with question prompts to consider when evaluating medical research here.
