Session 1 - 04 October (9am to 12pm) Session 2 - 06 October (9am to 12pm)


This training course will take place online. 

Extensive searching is the foundation of high quality systematic reviews, health technology assessment (HTA), guideline development and other major projects.  Conducting searches to retrieve research evidence from databases and other resources requires a range of knowledge and skills.  There are constant challenges to keeping up-to-date with new database features and approaches to achieving efficient searches.  Search approaches may need to be adapted depending on the end-product which the search is informing and the resources available.  Search approaches increasingly need to be explained to sponsors and other end-users in terms of the extent to which they are fit-for-purpose.

This workshop will provide opportunities to learn new techniques for search term identification and search structuring, to learn about peer review, to learn about search tips and pitfalls, as well as key databases other than MEDLINE (the Cochrane Library and Embase) and other resources and search guidance.  There will be time to discuss best approaches, ask questions and to share insights.
