As part of our ‘Instant EBM’ This course will introduce participants to the concept of research synthesis and explore simple ways to rapidly bring evidence together to inform decision making. During the day we will undertake a search for high quality evidence to answer a clinical question. We will then look at ways of identifying the findings/key themes from the research and present various methods/tools to quickly bring the results together to form a useful overview of the evidence quickly and effectively.

Who will benefit from this course?

If you are new to research synthesis or need to expand your skill set to include rapid synthesis the this course will be ideal. It will offer an introduction to synthesis for those who do not need to undertake full scale systematic reviews, but would like to be able to bring research findings together simply and quickly to form a clear picture. Typical participants
might be:

  • Academics & Researchers
  • Health and social care clinicians/practitioners
  • Post graduate students
  • Health Librarians and Information Specialists

Course Materials

A copy of all course materials will be provided on the day on USB.
