Training course: Systematic reviews - A course for humanitarian decision makers

Hello everyone,

Are you a humanitarian decision maker? Would you like to understand how systematic reviews fit into the context of evidence synthesis? Come and find out all about it at our course being held in Oxford, UK, on 10th April:

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.

Please feel free to share this information with your contacts, those you think might be interested, or networks you think might be relevant, as well as social media channels.

With many thanks,


Claire Allen
