Systematic Reviews Workshop Series - companion guide

This guide is where materials and slides from the Systematic Reviews workshop series will be posted.

Systematic Review workshop series description

A series of three, 2-2.5 hour workshops that are focused on

·         Workshop 1: Setting Yourself Up For Success 
The workshop will cover what is needed to plan your systematic review (or other evidence synthesis review) and create a review protocol that can be used to guide you through the review process. This is a hands-on session where attendees will work on activities throughout, in order to engage with the content and learn the related skills. 

·         Workshop 2: Developing Your Data Collection Strategy 
This workshop will cover the key concepts/skills needed to create a data collection strategy for your review project. Creating a comprehensive search strategy that is designed to capture as many relevant studies as possible and is validated using a test set, is similar to designing your data collection method in an experimental study. It requires careful planning as well as knowledge of how databases work. This is a hands-on session. 

·         Workshop 3: The Next Steps: Translating, tracking, reporting and study selection 
This workshop will cover the remaining steps of the data collection phase of your systematic review/knowledge synthesis review project and introduce you to the study selection process. This is a hands-on session.
