This session is part of series on Rigor & Reproducibility. When applying for grants, have you ever wondered how best to meet the NIH requirement to assess the rigor of the prior research in your field? Critical appraisal can help readers determine whether a study's results are valid, what the results are, and whether they are relevant to you. This class will cover the basics of critically appraising studies, including study design, methods, bias, and confounding.  Join us for the follow up session entitled, “Critical Appraisal Journal Club, individual session” on September 28, 2021.
