HPER71-115: Systematic Review

Description

In this subject, you will learn why systematic reviews are at the top of the evidence pyramid, how to critically appraise their quality, how to understand and interpret quantitative results, and how to plan to conduct a systematic review.  You will also learn all the practical steps involved in conducting a systematic review, such as screening, selecting, and extracting data, and the tools that are used to speed up the process. The subject content is created, curated, and facilitated by researchers at the Institute for Evidence Based Healthcare. The two one-day intensive workshops are intended to solidify your content knowledge, support the protocol preparation, and facilitate practical skills development. Conducting a systematic review is a team sport, and this subject will equip you to be a valuable member of a review team.
