Series 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. In each live session of this monthly limited-run webinar series, Margaret Foster draws from her expertise to discuss issues, provide examples, and demonstrate the steps of her Pieces process, as described in her book Assembling the Pieces of Systematic Review: A Guide for Librarians. This second run of the original series will provide more practical examples for conducting each step of a systematic review as well as look at other types of reviews. Sessions will occur on the third Thursday of every month from 2pm – 3:30pm ET. The webinar will highlight the following topics:

  • Thursday, January 17, 2019 – Plan: Developing your topic, framing the question, selecting a standard and output
  • Thursday, February 21, 2019 – Identify: Developing your search, documenting
  • Thursday, March 21, 2019 – Evaluate: Screening tools
  • Thursday, April 18, 2019 – Collect: Coding and synthesis
  • Thursday, May 16, 2019 – Explain & Summarize: Reporting and dissemination, series wrap-up
