Introduction to Systematic Review

Monday 2 - 6 November 2015 - University of East Anglia, Norwich

This course will introduce delegates to the processes involved in designing, conducting, appraising and disseminating systematic reviews. It will be delivered by experienced systematic reviewers who have published internationally on various healthcare research synthesis projects.


Delegates will be encouraged to bring their own research ideas to the course. These will be developed throughout the taught programme and with discussion with faculty members, providing a tailored environment for delegates to produce an outline for their own systematic review protocol. The course is designed for both healthcare professionals with an interest in research as well as MSc and PhD students.
