Introduction to Systematic Reviews in Health


Course Information

Systematic Reviews in Health – an introductory training day

This live online course is delivered by Southampton Health Technology Assessments Centre (SHTAC).

It is for anyone planning or currently doing a systematic review, or anyone curious about how reviews are done and what makes them systematic.  

It provides a stage by stage introduction to the methods and processes commonly used to conduct systematic reviews of the effects of health and health care interventions.

Structured presentations with interactive practical exercises guide participants through the systematic review process, from initial scoping of the review topic to communicating the completed review's findings.  

Many participants complete the course in readiness for conducting their own review, and all participants can continue their learning with information and further resources contained in their free comprehensive electronic course manual.
