Are All Systematic Reviews Created Equal?

Tuesday, July 12th, 2016

Join us at the Lamar Soutter Library at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester, MA to view this MLA webinar.

Date: August 10th, 2-3:30 PM eastern time
Register now!

Webinar Description:

The number of published systematic reviews has increased dramatically over the last fifteen years. Are they all good? Like any other study, a systematic review needs to be read with a critical eye. There are specific criteria for critically appraising a published systematic review. Understanding these criteria and applying them to a systematic review will give you more confidence in the conclusions you draw from a review.

After participating in this webinar, you will be able to:

identify the criteria for critically appraising a published systematic review;
identify the tools and resources that are available to help readers with this task; and
understand the layout of a forest plot, the graphical representation of the conclusions of a systematic review or meta analysis.
We will evaluate several systematic reviews to put into practice the guidance presented in this webinar.
