Workshop on Evidence-Based Medicine on Thursday 8 October 2015

As part of the new iQuest programme there is an all-day Workshop on Evidence-Based Medicine in the McWilliams Suite at the Wellington Park Hotel on Thursday 8 October 2015.  This Workshop is free and open to all Specialty trainees whether you are a core, higher or run-through trainee.  There are components on How to read a paper; Clinical Trial Design; Understanding Systematic Reviews; Risks and Odds; Ethics in Research; How to get a paper published; How to critique a paper.  We are grateful to the senior Clinical Professors from QUB who are going to be leading and contributing to these sessions.  This was run previously in September 2014 and had excellent evaluations by the trainees who attended.  This workshop is held annually.

This is a fantastic opportunity to listen to the experience and wisdom of local experts and I encourage you to book into this workshop.

How to book places on iQuest Modules:

During week commencing Monday 7 September 2015, you will receive an email from the HSC Leadership Centre, providing you with login details and further guidance on accessing their online course booking system.

Please note that this email will be issued to your HSCNI email address, so you will need to ensure that you have fully activated this account and are accessing it regularly. (If you have difficulty in accessing your HSCNI email account or your credentials do not appear to be working properly, you should contact the IT Service Desk at the BSO on telephone number 028 95362400.  As all accounts are managed by the BSO, NIMDTA is unable to provide assistance in resolving difficulties with accounts).  Trainees who are not currently working on an HSCNI site (eg, OOP or Maternity Leave) may be required to use their personal email address.

The system will enable trainees to book places on courses which are appropriate for their year of training.  For the first year or two, priority for places at the final modules will be given to those in the final months of training to achieve CCT.

There are only a limited number of places and places will be allocated on a first come basis.

This workshop is one of 15 workshops which are being developed to enhance the generic skills of all trainees as part of the iQuest Programme (Improving Quality and Understanding in Specialty Training).
