This short course gives a detailed introduction to the methods involved in conducting a systematic review of a health intervention, and enables participants to plan and commence a review of their own.The course will take a step-by-step approach to the tasks and methods involved in conducting a systematic review to answer a question about the effects of a health-related intervention, from a simple drug treatment to a complex public health or health systems intervention.A mixture of presentations and hands-on activities will be used to introduce participants to major aspects of the review process.Day 1 will cover defining your research question, planning your inclusion criteria, searching the literature, and assessing bias in included studies.Day 2 will cover an introduction to meta-analysis, analysing different types of commonly encountered data, and interpreting your results.Participants are encouraged to identify a topic for a systematic review that they can develop during hands-on sessions.This course is presented by Cochrane Australia, and is based on training provided for authors of Cochrane systematic reviews. Please note that the course will not cover methods for systematic reviews of non-intervention questions such as prevalence, aetiology, risk factors, diagnostic test accuracy or prognosis.This course is most suited for anyone thinking about conducting a systematic review of a health intervention.
