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. Pieces is a monthly, interactive web conference to address some of these issues for a wide range of audiences, whether it’s health science librarians or their constituents.
Series Dates: Each webinar will be an hour long at 10am CT on the first Thursday of every month beginning in February 2017 and ending in July 2017. Please mark the following dates on your calendar:
Social Media: These sessions will be interactive, with various prompts presented during the presentation as well as on social media. Use the hashtag #piecesQA for discussion!
