Evaluating qualitative papers in a multidisciplinary evidence-based journal club: a pilot study

  • Raja A. S. Mukherjee (a1), Katherine Owen (a2) and Sheila Hollins (a2)
Extract

Journal clubs have traditionally been important means by which clinicians, academics and trainees appraise research that relates to their field. In recent years the evidence-based style has become more prevalent, allowing knowledge gleaned from research to be applied to clinical situations. Currently, the main approach of evidence-based journal clubs is quantitative. This paper describes the evaluation of a modified journal club format, developed in an academic department of a medical school and combining the appraisal of both qualitative and quantitative papers.
