HSL Pilots Critical Appraisal Institute for Librarians 

The Health Sciences Library (HSL) piloted the first Critical Appraisal Institute for Librarians (CAIFL) on January 23, made possible by a National Network of Libraries of Medicine Middle Atlantic Region Symposium Award. The six-week online program aims to develop librarians' critical appraisal skills via enhanced understanding of research design, biomedical statistics, and clinical reasoning to apply knowledge in teaching target populations and assuming leadership roles in teaching evidence-based medicine (EBM). The program covers assessment; self-directed learning through video, readings and problem sets; small group facilitated exercises; and plenary talks by physician and librarian experts in evidence based practice and critical appraisal.
