Description: Systematic reviews are well-documented as contributing to evidence-based healthcare by, in part, revealing gaps in the literature or illustrating the effectiveness of health interventions. They are common practice, but they can often be fraught with issues in how they’re conducted. There is a constant need for education and discussion. Pieces is a monthly web conference presented by the National Network of Libraries of Medicine South Central Region on topics related to systematic reviews on the first Thursday of every month from 10am-11am CT. The webinar will highlight the following topics:

Thursday, February 2, 2017 - How do you determine if a research question is right for a systematic review?
Thursday, March 2, 2017 - What searches beyond the typical databases should be done?
Thursday, March 9, 2017 - Q&A Session
Thursday, April 6, 2017 - What happens after the search?
Thursday, May 4, 2017 - What free software is useful for conducting review?
Thursday, June 1, 2017 - How can a librarian support other types of reviews (scoping, integrative, rapid)?
**Thursday, July 6, 2017 - What are the new developments in review methods? Login information for this session is below.
