At Journal Club, MAHIP members meet to discuss and explore the current literature in our field. It is an excellent way to keep up with the literature, socialize with colleagues and brainstorm about new trends. For each meeting, a volunteer facilitator is responsible for choosing the article and encouraging discussion. MAHIP’s Journal Club is accredited by the Canadian Health Libraries Association (CHLA/ABSC).

For more information on the Journal Club:

Please help to make journal club a positive educational opportunity by attending and prior to the meeting:

  • Critically appraise the paper using the tool facilitator identified
  • Optional: be prepared to identify at least 1 take home point that would be actionable from the paper
