CREAD (1)_optWelcome to the second edition of CREAD- CRitical Evaluation, Appraisal and Discussion.

This very much takes its inspiration from the work of the team over at Life in The Fast Lane which provides regular round ups of some of the many resources available via the internet which makes our learning easier.

We are attempting something similar here, but the difference is that the contributors are from specialties other than medicine. So we have paramedics, nurses, and physios to name just a few. They are all experienced in their fields, regular internet learners and Twitter users. Some have written articles and some have pointed out some of the resources they have come across on their internet travels.

This will be a bi-monthly effort initially. If it becomes popular and the hard working contributors can find the time then I hope it will become more regular.

I do want to emphasize that it is the work of the contributors that makes it work…..I am just the coordinator.

If you do feel you want to make a contribution in the future please get in touch with me via Twitter @ccpractitioner.
