Title: An introduction to systematic reviews in the humanitarian sector
Date: 30 November 2016
Location: Oxford, UK
Cost: £225/person to include all course materials, lunch and refreshments
Course Outline: Building on his successful and popular courses on systematic reviews in a wide variety of settings, Professor Mike Clarke will run this 1-day Evidence Aid course to place systematic reviews in the context of disasters and the provision of humanitarian aid. The course will provide learning and practical experience in a small group setting for many aspects of systematic reviewing. These include question formulation and eligibility criteria, searching for eligible material, data extraction, analysis, and reporting. Examples relevant to the humanitarian sector will be used to illustrate key points and participants should leave the course feeling more comfortable about embarking on their own systematic review and when using reviews for decision making.
Background: Professor Clarke has more than 25 years’ experience of the conduct and oversight of rigorous evaluations of the effects of a wide variety of interventions, actions and strategies. He is the Director of the Northern Ireland Hub for Trials Methodology Research and one of the founders of Evidence Aid. Mike has extensive experience of teaching about systematic reviews, and established and continues to teach the Reviews module on the University of Oxford’s international MSc in Evidence Based Health Care. He is a leading proponent of the use of systematic reviews in decision making, and has a strong interest in increasing the capacity for doing and using reviews.
