Evidence in Transplantation Course (EVIT 5)

By: Peter Morris | Posted on: 28th February 2013

The 5th EVIT course sponsored by ESOT has just been held at the Royal College of Surgeons of England over an intense 2 days. The faculty was made up of members of the CET and the CEU of the College and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. There was an enthusiastic group of participants ranging from a PhD student to a consultant transplant surgeon, most being trainees. The course covered a range of relevant topics in the evaluation of evidence ranging from searching the literature to the conduct of a systematic review. Finally the participants were split into two groups and each prepared a systematc review of Prograf versus Advagraf with Forest plots, which was presented by a spokesman for each group in the final session. Even the faculty were impressed!
