Workshop Description
This workshop is intended for Master’s and PhD students in the School of Physical and Occupational Therapy. Students will be exposed to the major features of a systematic review through a combination of lecture and workshop. This workshop will have two parts: (1) how to complete a systematic review; and (2) how to critically appraise a systematic review and apply findings to guide future research and best-practice in the clinical setting. In the first part, this workshop will briefly review criteria for a good research question, research design, and criteria for judging study rigour. Following the review of these principles, this workshop will cover the key steps for completing a systematic review including: formulating a research question, conducting a comprehensive and reproducible literature review, selecting relevant studies, extracting relevant data, assessing study quality, statistical reporting, and report writing. In part 2, students will also learn the methods for assessing and interpreting evidence in order to critically appraise systematic reviews.
