These workshops will help you to learn about using Clinical Decision Making principles and skills. You will have an opportunity to hone these skills so that they can then inform clinical work and save you time.
We recognise that everyone has different starting points so we tailor the programme accordingly and offer a progression of workshops.
The workshops are modelled on those run at the Centre for Evidence Based Practice in Oxford and are subsidised by PenCLAHRC.
