ISN YNC Webinar: Understanding Basic Concepts of Clinical Research for Literature Appraisal: What Every Nephrologist Should Know
Reading journal articles is part of our daily lives as (young) nephrologists, but how can we get the most out of a research article? We invite you to join a panel of experts who will share their tips for appraising scientific literature. They will present a structured approach to reading a paper and making an educated assessment of its strengths and weaknesses, and help you identify its implications for your daily practice.
