2018-2021 participant quotes

"Great day - feel confident in being able to start my doctorate systematic review in the correct way being able to foresee the common problems now rather than encountering them mid-way through."

"Great course, I even got the answers right for the meta analysis practical example and I struggle with statistics. I understood the concepts. i expected a headache as long day on screen but the course had lots of breaks and interactive work to do. no headache after."

"I would highly recommend this course. The course was well taught and topics were well explained. Covered the main aspects of carrying out a systematic review really well whilst signposting to relevant guidance and software for those about to embark on a systematic review. The facilitators were approachable and answered questions really well. The course material will be really useful too. Thank you!"
