Abstract

With the push toward evidence-based medicine in the clinical decision-making process, it is truly important for new practitioners to be equipped with the skills to critically evaluate current literature. Journal clubs are a useful forum for the development of this skill. Traditional journal clubs are often viewed as boring by those who attend, and participation is often lacking. By using some of the strategies detailed in this article and continuing to generate new ideas, journal club can become an effective tool to teach the skills of evaluation and appraisal and give new practitioners confidence in applying current literature to their practice.
