Contents: Cochrane Singapore and SCRI present a two-day course on the systematic reviews of interventional studies and a two-day course on systematic reviews of observational studies

The two-day Basic Workshop provides the essential guidance of entire systematic review process, referring to the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions. It covers the topics on developing a focused question (PICO method) and effective literature search strategy, assessing risk of bias of studies, conducting meta-analysis using Review Manager and understanding the results (e.g. forest and funnel plots) and heterogeneity. 

The two-day Advanced Workshop is a mixture of lectures and practical work. A systematic review and meta-analysis of interventions typically include well-conducted randomised controlled trials (RCTs) however sometimes the lack of RCTs may prompt reviewers to include observational studies such as cohort and case-control studies. This two-day workshop will guide reviewers on how to conduct systematic reviews on observational studies. It will cover the following key topics: searching the Cochrane Library, bias and confounding, assessing risk of bias, conducting a meta-analysis, multiple regression analysis and a hands-on session on RevMan and R software.
