April Workshop (23,26-27,29-30) 2021

Registration now closed

The Queen's Collaboration for Health Care Quality (formerly named Queen's Joanna Briggs Collaboration) offers comprehensive systematic review training (CSRT) featuring the Joanna Briggs Institute methodology for evidence synthesis. This 5 day, full day (9am - 5pm EST)  workshop is designed to prepare health sciences researchers, clinicians, librarians, graduate students and other individuals involved in quality and practice portfolios to develop, conduct, and report systematic reviews of  evidence. Certified reviewers may become authorized reviewers in the Institute’s peer reviewed journal, the JBI Database of Systematic Reviews and Implementation Reports (JBISRIR), which is indexed in Embase, Scopus, Mosby’s Index (Elsevier), CINAHL (EBSCO) and Medline.

This activity-driven program includes rigorous methods and tools to appraise and synthesize evidence from  research literature and documentary sources. Participants gain hands-on experience in drafting a systematic review protocol, including definition of the question(s) and search, retrieval and selection of research for the review. You will critically analyze sample quantitative and qualitative research and expert opinion papers as part of the review process, and be introduced to JBI software for performing meta-analysis and meta-synthesis of selected studies. Participantd also examine the nature of evidence and its role in healthcare to further understand how evidence transfers into health care practice.
