Join the WSPID Journal Club – August 2023

You are warmly invited to our upcoming WSPID Journal Club session!

The purpose of the Journal Club is to present a critique of an article in order to better understand how to frame effective clinical questions, understand databases, perform searches, as well as review the basics of study designs, relevant statistics and the concepts of ethics and justice. This initiative is co-led by Young WSPID and volunteers from the regional pediatric infectious diseases societies.
