Systematic and Scoping Reviews for Health Sciences

Are you working on a systematic or scoping review? Have you heard of these before but would like to find out more? Systematic/scoping reviews are intensive research projects and having a good grounding in the methodology is important for a successful and impactful study. This workshop will provide participants with detailed instruction about the methodology involved in conducting effective systematic/scoping reviews.

This workshop is appropriate for undergraduate, graduate, and faculty in the Health Sciences. If you are thinking about starting, have just started, or are in the midst of a systematic or scoping review, this workshop will facilitate the execution of your project.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to: identify the differences between a systematic and a scoping review; formulate a research question that is appropriate for a systematic or a scoping review​​; recognize the parts necessary for a well-developed protocol; convert a research question into component parts of a search strategy; describe the techniques need to build a comprehensive search; select databases and other sources of information to search based on the research question​​; outline the process of a systematic/scoping review post-search
