CATmaker is a software tool which helps you create Critically Appraised Topics, or CATs, for the key articles you encounter about Therapy, Diagnosis, Prognosis, Aetiology/Harm and Systematic Reviews of Therapy.

Guidelines for critically appraising articles may be viewed by clicking on the relevant link on the left of this page

Once you have created you 'Critical Appraised Topic' choose the option of 'save as WebCAT' from the toolbar. You will need to save this file as a 'html' file in order to generate your CAT. To do this simply type '.html' onto the tilte of your CAT when saving it. If your work is incomplete and you wish to return to it later, choose the option 'Save as Kitten' from the toolbar menu.
