CASP has produced simple critical appraisal checklists for the key study designs. These are not meant to replace considered thought and judgement when reading a paper but are for use as a guide and aide memoire. All CASP checklists cover three main areas: validity, results and clinical relevance.
Critical Appraisal is the process of carefully and systematically examining research to judge its trustworthiness, and its value and relevance in a particular context. It is an essential skill for evidence-based medicine because it allows people to find and use research evidence reliably and efficiently.
