Advanced Seminar Testimonial
"Two thumbs up for Delfini !! The recent EBM refresher and advanced EBM training they provided to over 40 McKesson content development clinicians received great reviews from our whole team. The refresher reinforced the expertise we have developed in applying the principles of critical appraisal to our clinical content development since we first started working with Delfini four years ago. Sheri and Mike’s ability to explain complex concepts in an easy to understand and conversational manner produced multiple “aha” moments for our team. Warm thoughts and wishes, Kate"
