Webcast Series: Equity and Methods in Campbell Collaboration Systematic Reviews

The Center on KTDRR is pleased to present this webcast series on equity considerations and methodological standards of the Campbell Collaboration. The Campbell Collaboration is an international research network that promotes positive social and economic change through the production and use of systematic reviews and other evidence synthesis for evidence-based policy and practice.

In this three-part webcast series participants will learn how to incorporate people with disabilities into systematic review planning as well as Campbell’s standards, methods, and guidelines for conducting systematic reviews

These webcasts are intended to provide a brief (7-10 minute) introduction into the topics of the presentation. If you would like more information about these topics or are interested in conducting a systematic review in the Campbell Collaboration, please contact Tracy Bauman.
