This workshop will instruct participants on the steps involved and the planning process for systematic reviews, including faculty, librarian, and student roles. Systematic reviews identify, appraise, and synthesize all available evidence on a specific research question. A protocol is used to determine what will be included, and follow specific standards to reduce bias. Health sciences faculty may be interested including psychology, nursing, sports medicine, and other disciplines. The goal is to encourage more systematic review studies and collaboration with students and librarians.
