The theme of the course this year is paediatric infectious diseases and we will examine evidence underpinning recent guidelines relevant to this topic.

Participants will examine some of the evidence underpinning guidelines and debate their interpretation. They will also consider how to incorporate the best available evidence on interventions and diagnosis into their clinical decisions and the information they give to patients.

The course involves a mix of interactive plenary and facilitated small group sessions, combined with training in searching and support for self-directed searching.
