Full course description
Through the completion of this badge, you will be introduced to the foundational concepts of evidence synthesis. Evidence synthesis is a broad term that describes many approaches, most notably systematic reviews. These approaches aim to inform decision making through the distillation of a comprehensive set of information and resources that address a specific topic or research question. As a means to informing decision-making, it is imperative that evidence synthesis is well-documented, reported transparently, and incorporates layers of critical assessment of quality and bias in both the resources synthesized, and the review process itself. For more specific learning objectives, please view the description provided for each workshop in the links below.
