About us

Everyone wants good health and healthcare that is effective. But how can we know whether a claimed intervention is truly effective? Many interventions are given with the best of intentions, but have later been found to be ineffective with the potential for harm and wasted resource.

Critical Appraisal skills enable you to systematically assess the trustworthiness, relevance and results of published papers. The Critical Appraisal Skills Programme (CASP) has over 28 years of significant and unrivalled expertise in the delivery of training to healthcare professionals.

"Is the research you are reading good, bad or indifferent? We need Critical Appraisal skills more than ever, to make that judgement. This is why you need the Critical Appraisal Skills Programme to help you make sense of the evidence."

Professor Sir Muir Gray

CASP has a series of easy to use checklists to help you read research, and also delivers training through face-to-face workshops, online learning, virtual workshops and train the trainer courses.

Using critical appraisal skills and tools enables users of research evidence to reach their own judgements.
