About this course
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.
