My groupmates and I are currently doing critical appraisal on a medical journal.The title is
'Effect of long-acting Nifedipine on mortality and cardiovascular morbidity in patients with stable angina requiring treatmet (ACTION trial): randomized clinical trial'
Doing clinical appraisal is not an easy task.Now is the time to apply all the knowledge and thats when then the problem comes.
I'm tired and I juz wanna sleep.

This posting is good coz one of its main objective is to ensure u on how to critically appraise a journal so that u wont be duped by a short-wearing skirt drug representative,promoting their drugs later when you work as a doctor.Sadly, there are significant numbers of doctors out there who are clueless/confused about evidence based medicine, therefore become prey for drug companies.
I didnt know that there are a lot of types of medical journals out there .eg diagnostic,prognostic,therapeutic etc.Tomorrow is exam.byebye.
