The OSH Evidence Group offers workshops to provide knowledge in searching systematic reviews for OSH topics. All aspects of finding and assessing reviews are presented and trained in practice:
• Definition of an answerable question and search strategy
• Searching and finding the appropriate systematic reviews
• Assessing the quality of found reviews
• Reporting the results.
Participants can bring their own topics to elaborate. At the end of the workshop the participants have hands-on experience of searching for systematic reviews and of quality assessment of reviews. Handouts and papers for practice are given.
The benefits for the participants will include a better understanding of reviews in general and knowledge of how to find systematic reviews for their needs at work.
Target group: Professionals and students working in practice, research and administration in occupational safety and health.
The workshops are offered at no charge and are open to everybody
