JBI offers a range of education and training courses for clinicians, managers, educators, academics and students from the fields of nursing, allied health, medicine, information science and the health sciences.

JBI Comprehensive Systematic Review Training Program (CSRT)

Prepares researchers and clinicians to develop, conduct and report comprehensive systematic reviews that provide the strongest possible evidence to inform decision making or clinical guidelines in healthcare.
Throughout this world-class systematic review training program, which incorporates both theory and hands on experience, you will learn how to develop a focused question, search for relevant literature, appraise and synthesize evidence arising from research. By the end of the program, you will have a completed protocol and be ready to commence your review!  

The JBI Comprehensive Systematic Review Training Program is a one, three or five-day program depending on your research needs or areas of interest.

  • Module 1: Introduction to Evidence-based Health Care and the Systematic Review of Evidence (day 1)
  • Module 2: Systematic Review of Quantitative Evidence (days 2 & 3)
  • Module 3: Systematic Review of Evidence Generated by Qualitative Research, Narrative and Text (days 4 & 5)
  • Please note Module 1 is a pre-requisite for Modules 2 and 3.

Trainees will have access to the JBI software for evidence synthesis, SUMARI (System for the Unified Management, Assessment and Review of Information) for one year as part of their tuition.
