This popular one day course is delivered by Southampton Health Technology Assessments Centre (SHTAC).

The course will provide an introductory overview of the key aspects of systematic reviewing the effectiveness of health interventions and is designed for health professionals, academics and decision makers who have an understanding of health and related research.  Although this course relates to health, the principles can be applied to other disciplines (e.g. education, environmental sciences, social sciences).

The course is presented by members of the SHTAC team, who are highly experienced in conducting systematic reviews.  The day comprises slide presentations interspersed with small group interactive practical exercises. The concepts are brought to life with examples from published systematic reviews.

This one day course is split into sections with each section covering a key stage of conducting a systematic review.
