What’s it all about?
Learning how to read, analyse and assess research is an essential part of becoming a researcher. Journal club is a collection of meetings which aim to provide early career researchers a place to develop critical assessment skills. The topics discussed revolve around health informatics and are chosen so that they are accessible for all participants.
Journal club has become a key and core component of the education and development activities that we deliver in the Centre of Health Informatics. The aim is to help new and existing members of the department improve their critical appraisal skills and discuss work published by other groups. The journal club also functions as a way to gain feedback on abstracts/papers written by members of the department before submission.
