Suggested format:
  • 2 articles to be presented - 5-10 mins for presentation (PowerPoint or other visual aid) then 15-20 minutes for discussion
  • It would be good to have a theme for the papers
  • The presenters will send the proposed articles to us at least 3 weeks before the meeting for distribution and review (ideally first week of the month)
  • A Microsoft Teams invite will then be sent with the articles
  • If no papers are proposed the co-chairs will choose articles and distribute
  • The presentation should have limited slides with basic information and main points
Attached are some Critical Appraisal checklists for reference.
