If you work on a systematic review team or plan to, you’ll want to know three important things: the essential features and purpose of a systematic review, how systematic reviews differ from scoping reviews, rapid reviews, informal reviews and other review types, and how to determine if a systematic review on a topic is needed.

This basic knowledge is key to your success as a review team member and consultant. Subject matter experts, medical staff and statisticians eager to contribute a systematic review to the scholarly literature probably don’t know them. Your knowledge of them can save a team time and embarrassment and give you increased stature and authority.

  • the key features of the systematic review method and the research questions systematic reviews are best able to answer
  • how to efficiently locate published systematic reviews on a topic
  • how to evaluate the quality of a review to determine if a new and better one is needed

When you register for the webinar, you’ll have access to brief readings and questions that will be discussed in the webinar. During the webinar, you’ll learn from presentations and discussions.

You’ll leave with new skills and knowledge that will help you raise your profile in your institution, advance in your career, and increase the satisfaction and confidence that comes from knowing you are good at what you do!
