Preparing for your Systematic Review

Course Description (34 Minutes):

Planning your review before you start will not only speed up the production process; it will improve the quality of your review by assuring that you are attaining the highest level of medical evidence. Planning your Systematic Review will breakdown the planning process into a series of essentials steps.

Course Objectives:

  • Understand the place of systematic reviews in evidence based medicine and knowledge synthesis
  • Identify all the responsibilities of a systematic review team
  • Be able to form a sold, answerable question that is well suited to the systematic review process
  • Understand inclusion and exclusion criteria for articles and why you need them
  • Articulate the elements which make up a reproducible, peer-reviewed literature search
