MAR is Introducing Monthly Boost Box Sessions

  • Boost Box will occur the second Tuesday of each month from Noon – 1:00 pm.  These sessions are educational webinars designed to boost knowledge of NLM products or other topics of interest.
  • On June 12, Mary Lou Klem PhD, MLIS, Health Sciences Library System, University of Pittsburgh, will present:  Study Design and Systematic Reviews.

Systematic reviews are literature reviews that critically appraise and summarize the “best available evidence” for a clinical question or topic.  While the most well-known “best evidence” is the randomized controlled trial (RCT), other study designs may also be appropriate for use in systematic reviews.  This presentation provides an overview and description of two broad classes of study designs (experimental and observational), an explanation of critical differences between these two types of design, and a real-world example of the impact of such design differences on study outcomes..
