KTDRR Research Evidence Training: Evidence Gap Maps and Other Innovative Reporting Strategies

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 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 fourth session is a pre-recorded webcast with Dr. Howard White, who discusses strategies other than systematic reviews for reporting data, primarily, evidence gap maps or EGMs. He describes what goes into evidence gap maps and provides a number of examples on the use and usefulness of this strategy and introduces other evidence-based strategies such as toolkits, guidelines, and checklists.
