The Louisiana Center for Promotion of Optimal Health Outcomes: A Joanna Briggs Institute Center of Excellence invites you to attend a 5-day workshop

Who is JBI?

The Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) is the international not-for-profit, research and development centre within the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Adelaide, South Australia.

The Institute collaborates internationally with over 70 entities across the world. The Institute and its collaborating entities promote and support the synthesis, transfer and utilization of evidence through identifying feasible, appropriate, meaningful and effective healthcare practices to assist in the improvement of healthcare outcomes globally.

What is a systematic review?

A systematic review (SR) summarizes, synthesizes, and critically appraises the results of available carefully designed healthcare studies (controlled trials) to provide a high level of evidence on the effectiveness of healthcare interventions. The SR provides the clinician with the best available evidence to inform point-of-care clinical decisions.

Certified Systematic Reviewer Training
This training will provide participants with rigorous methods and evidence-based instruments to appraise and synthesize research literature. Participants will identify a question, search, retrieve, and select research to build a systematic review protocol. Interactive training is activity-driven using JBI software to perform meta-analysis and meta-aggregation of selected studies.

Why do I need SR training?

The SR training provides the reviewer with a framework and process to work within to insure a consistent and rigorous manner of analysis is performed.

Weeklong sessions will include:
Overview of Evidence Based Practice & the JBI Model
Designing Protocols for Systematic Review
Systematic Review of Quantitative, Qualitative, & Text Evidence
