What is Critical Appraisal?

"Critical appraisal is the process of carefully and systematically assessing the outcome of scientific research (evidence) to judge its trustworthiness, value and relevance in a particular context.
Critical appraisal looks at the way a study is conducted and examines factors such as internal validity, generalizability and relevance."
