About

Systematic Reviews for Policy and Practice from Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine aims to provide students with the knowledge, skills and confidence to appraise, interpret and use systematic reviews.

Overview

Systematic Reviews for Policy and Practice from Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine convenors co-ordinate the Cochrane Infectious Diseases Group, who introduced evidence-informed approaches to tropical diseases and are a large global network of researchers, public health specialists and clinicians carrying out systematic reviews. The course builds on LSTM’s leadership in developing and adopting systematic reviews in global health.
