An introduction to systematic reviews

When you have participated in this course you will have learnt:
- to differentiate various types of reviews
- to identify the various elements in a systematic review
- the process of a systematic review
- to judge the structure and contents of a systematic review.
However, if you need help to conduct a systematic review, you may contact the IRS/KI to see if you can get a place on the five-day course, which stretches over three months, in which individual coaching is provided. 

This one-day course is intended to give the participants an insight into the world of systematic reviews; the various types, the varying quality, and how to quickly scan a systematic review article to see if it could be a useful document.

It consists of a mixture of instructions and workshop activities.

Teaching methods:
Instructions mixed with individual and group work using examples from the literature. Participants will need their PC, as they will have to find these examples via Pubmed. It is also a good idea for participants to prepare/bring some systematic reviews they find relevant in PDF or paper format for scrutiny and discussions.
