About

The Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses of Health Research course from London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine will provide participants with a basis in the design, analysis and interpretation of systematic reviews of health research. 

Overview

The increasing amount of research information produced each year makes it impossible for users of health research to evaluate and keep up-to-date with the new evidence. Consequently systematic reviews have a vital role in providing reliable syntheses of research for evidence-based decision-making.

Participants in the Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses of Health Research course from London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine will be given grounding in all aspects involved in conducting a systematic review and meta-analysis, and will have the opportunity to gain practical experience of the tasks involved. By the end of the course participants will be equipped with the necessary skills to conduct their own high quality systematic reviews .

At the end of the course the students should be able to:

  • Describe the principles of systematic reviews
  • Interpret the results of systematic reviews
  • Critically appraise existing systematic reviews
  • Conduct their own high quality systematic reviews and meta-analysis
