The Heidelberg Systematic Review Course – Germany Option 1

User Avatar

The Heidelberg Systematic Review Course (SEP 4 – 6) is aimed at participants who wish to become proficient in developing and undertaking a Cochrane-style systematic review of interventions. As this is an introductory course, no previous knowledge of systematic reviewing is required.

This is a hands-on course with a high focus on practical and computer-based learning delivered through demonstrations, guided practical exercises and facilitated tutorials using Review Manager (RevMan) and Endnote software. Experienced facilitators are on hand to give you practical advice on undertaking publishable systematic reviews.

No prior knowledge is required, though to maximise your learning, we ask you to have considered the topic (PICO) of your own review prior to the course. Attendees provide their own laptop.
