This class provides an overview of resources to facilitate the preparation and reporting of a systematic review using the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Review and Meta Analysis Protocols (PRISMA-P) checklist as a tool to guide the review process.
“Protocols of systematic reviews and meta-analyses allow for planning and documentation of review methods, act as a guard against arbitrary decision making during review conduct, enable readers to assess for the presence of selective reporting against completed reviews, and, when made publicly available, reduce duplication of efforts and potentially prompt collaboration.” (Shamseer et al., 2015)
A well-done systematic review starts with a protocol. Let us show you how to get your review off to the best possible start.
At the completion of this class, participants will:
- Identify key components in the systematic review process.
- Develop a robust protocol using the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis Protocols(PRISMA-P) checklist.
- Identify tools and strategies to capture data for the PRISMA flow diagram.
