The Critical Appraisal Skills Programme (CASP) is part of Better Value Healthcare Ltd (BVHC)



Better Value Healthcare Ltd (BVHC) is an Oxford-based company set up by Professor Sir Muir Gray to promote the practice of value-based healthcare for individuals and organisations in the healthcare sector. BVHC creates and disseminates training materials, delivers training courses, and engages in consultancy to help the key players in healthcare understand and increase value in their services.



Part of BVHC’s portfolio is the Critical Appraisal Skills Programme (CASP), which delivers training to help people make sense of scientific literature. The programme has developed workshops and tools for critical appraisal covering a wide range of research. It has also developed finding the evidence workshops, interactive and e-learning resources.



The philosophy of CASP has always been about sharing knowledge and understanding, working in ways that are non hierarchical, multidisciplinary and using problem based approaches. This ensures that it is accessible and has practical day to day application.
