Short Course - How to Quickly Synthesise Research

Information Resources Group (part of our HEDS Group) are once again running our "Instant Evidence Based Medicine" course.

"How to quickly synthesise research" will take place in Sheffield on Tuesday 13th February 2018.

This course will introduce participants to the concept of research synthesis and explore simple ways to rapidly bring evidence together to inform decision making. During the day we will undertake a search for high quality evidence to answer a clinical question. We will then look at ways of identifying the findings/key themes from the research and present various methods/tools to quickly bring the results together to form a useful overview of the evidence quickly and effectively.

If you are new to research synthesis or need to expand your skill set to include rapid synthesis then this course will be ideal. It will offer an introduction to synthesis for those who do not need to undertake full scale systematic reviews, but would like to be able to bring research findings together simply and quickly to form a clear picture.
