KTDRR and Campbell Collaboration Research Evidence Training:
Overview of Systematic Review and Research Synthesis

About the Webcast

The KTDRR Center and the international Campbell Collaboration are working together to offer a five-part training course that focuses on high-quality methods for synthesis of evidence, including the procedures and methods for conducting systematic reviews/research syntheses (SR/RS) as well as software, tools, and strategies for analyzing and reporting data. The training materials are developed by representatives of the Campbell Collaboration. Online resources from various national and international organizations will be provided for each session.

The first session, an Overview of Systematic Review and Research Synthesis, describes the benefits of evidence from SR, different types of reviews and differences between SR and RS, introduces organizations supporting and conducting SR/RS, and ends with the basic steps in SR/RS.
