This systematic review training program provides practical and theoretical introductions to the synthesis of evidence using Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) methods. The course follows the process of conducting a systematic review, from developing a clear review question, to constructing complex searches for relevant literature, appraising research studies and synthesising evidence arising from research. 

On completion, participants will be a JBI Certified Reviewer with access to the state-of-the-art JBI-SUMARI review software, which streamlines the process of conducting a systematic review.
