You’ve heard of systematic reviews (SRs), but what are they? This online class for students, faculty, and residents will provide an overview of this study type, describe characteristics of high-quality systematic reviews, and provide a glimpse into the comprehensive literature searches required for such projects.
Upon completing this class, you should be able to:
- Describe several characteristics of a well-done systematic review that distinguish it from a traditional narrative review
- Identify the well-known sets of standards available to guide development of 1) a systematic review protocol and, 2) a report of a completed systematic review
- Describe the overall purpose of a “comprehensive" literature search
Class materials will be made available to class attendees. This class will not be recorded.
