Introduction to writing a Cochrane review - Adelaide, Australia
This three-day workshop is designed for new authors starting a Cochrane systematic review. A mixture of presentations and hands-on sessions will give you an overview of all the methods required to write your protocol and get started on the review.
- Day 1 will cover scoping your review, the process of writing a protocol and searching the literature for included studies.
- Day 2 will cover assessing the risk of bias (critical appraisal) of your included studies, and begin an introduction to meta-analysis, common data types encountered in systematic reviews, and using the Review Manager software package.
- Day 3 will look at analysis of more complex study designs and data types, exploring and interpreting your results.
You can choose to attend all or only part of the workshop. If you wish to attend only Day 1 or Days 1 and 2 at first, you are welcome to return and attend Day 3 another time.
To register for this workshop, authors should have identified the topic for their review and registered the title (or be in the process of registering) with a Cochrane Review Group.
