Writing a systematic review following Cochrane methods - Sydney, Westmead Institute for Medical Research (WIMR) (Room C2.20), Monday, 09. December 2019

This three-day workshop is designed for authors of intervention reviews who wish to follow Cochrane methods. The workshop provides authors with a comprehensive overview of the methods required to write a protocol and get started on a review.
The workshop is suitable for people with little or no experience in systematic reviews who have identified a topic and are either already working on or are about to start working on a review.
Outline

Day 1 focuses on writing the protocol and covers defining the question, eligibility criteria, searching for studies, and assessing the risk of bias (critical appraisal) of included studies.
Day 2 continues with a risk of bias practical, an introduction to meta-analysis and the common data types encountered in systematic reviews, and how to use Cochrane’s review support and authoring tools (RevMan and Covidence).
Day 3 examines how to recognise more complex study designs and data types, synthesising studies when meta-analysis is not possible, applying GRADE and how to interpret results.

Workshops contain a mixture of presentations and hands-on sessions. Electronic copies of the slides are provided ahead of time. Participants require a laptop with Review Manager software for the practical RevMan training session.
Cost
This workshop is provided free of charge to Cochrane authors thanks to Cochrane Australia's core funding from the Australian Government through the National Health and Medical Research Council. For non-Cochrane authors the cost is $770 ($550 for full-time students).
