Searching and beyond 2018: a systematic review workshop for information professionals

April 26


CLAHRC North Thames has joined forces with colleagues at PenCLAHRC to bring their successful ‘Searching and Beyond’ workshop developed by information professionals for information professionals to London.

Systematic reviews are an essential component of evidence based health care and the number being undertaken is increasing.

PenCLAHRC’s  popular workshop has been redesigned with an exciting new online element followed by a day of discussion and participation on how our skills as information professionals can be used in carrying out a systematic review.

The online modules will require around 5 hours of your time prior to attending the workshop and will include videos and learning activities. We hope they will make you think of questions to bring along to the face-to-face workshop which will involve discussion, demonstration, practical work and participation.

The workshop includes:

Systematic reviews in context;
Systematic review search methods:
    –  Grey literature searching
    –  Search filters;
    –  Updating searches;
Reference management
Data extraction and critical appraisal

This one day, hands-on, interactive workshop offers librarians and other information professionals the chance to discover more about the systematic review process and how they can utilise many of the skills they already have within a systematic review. The workshop may also be of interest to researchers who have database searching experience and are keen to fine-tune their skills in both searching and reference management specific to systematic reviews.
