Evidence-based journal clubs and the Critical Review Paper: Candidate's perspective

  • Rajeev Dhar (a1) and Aileen O'Brien (a2)
Extract

The Critical Review Paper (CRP) has been part of the MRCPsych Part II examination for only two sittings and is still fairly uncharted territory. As two people who have separately sat the two papers, we examine whether evidence-based journal clubs (EBJCs) are useful preparation for the exams. We make an argument for changing the format of journal clubs to make them more relevant to the exam, as well as to promote the development of evidence-based practice.
