Welcome to the CASP UK Website
The Critical Appraisal Skills Programme helps people to find and interpret the best available evidence from health research.
It is part of an international network that shares a commitment to self-directed learning and promoting better understanding of science.
On this website you can find out about the CASP approach, download the CASP checklists, and find out what sort of workshops we offer to help improve your appraisal skills.
You can even commission one that is custom designed for your needs.
Download the CASP critical appraisal checklists for:
- Randomised Controlled Trials
- Systematic Reviews
- Cohort studies
- Case-control studies
- Qualitative studies
- Economic evaluations
- Diagnostic studies
You can also find out about the background to CASP, the CASP approach and Training the Trainer approaches.
Soon we hope to offer you the facility to find a Critical Appraisal or Finding the Evidence workshop near you. In the meantime, please contact us if you would like to find out more about any of our workshops or learning programmes.
We will be hosting a calendar of events, so that in the future anyone in the network of CASP partners can advertise their workshops.
