Beginner’s Guide

Welcome to Critical Insight.

Here’s a very quick introduction to the site.

The “Blog” is where new posts can be found, the most recent 5 will be displayed. Clicking on the green post titles will take you to each post, and enable you to read the discussion below. There’s now no need to be signed in to comment, so please let us know your thoughts.

You can join Critical Insight if you’d like to post your own critical appraisal of recent evidence. There’s a PDF in the blue box that explains how to join, or you can email Alternatively, just email the text of your appraisal and a link to the paper and I’ll put it up!

To the right of page is the “widget bar”. Here you can find easy ways to navigate around the site.

A new feature is a list of recent tweets from @criticalinsight. The  twitter feed will include interesting stuff we haven’t had a chance to cover in more depth.

You can select posts by date posted, by “tag” (keyword), or from the list of most recent additions. In addition you can search all posts, or download attached files from the blue box (n.b unfortunately the blue box is occasionally stopped by NHS computer systems).

If you’d like to add a new paper for discussion please see “How to Post”. New papers are best added as new posts whereas discussion of posts already added is best done by “commenting”.

That’s about it – you’re ready to go, tell us what you think!
