Call for volunteers: Systematic review on how primary healthcare workers in LMICs obtain information for prescribing

15 May, 2018

HIFA is collaborating with researchers from Nagasaki University and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to conduct a systematic review to learn about how primary healthcare workers in low and middle-income countries (LMICs) obtain information during consultations to aid prescribing.

We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help identify interventional or observational studies of regarding use of healthcare information tools or aids during consultations, focusing on primary healthcare workers in LMIC settings.

Specifically, we are looking for volunteers with experience of literature reviews, to screen batches of 1,000 titles and abstracts of the 60,000 potential studies identified from the database searches.

See the attached PDF file for working title, author affiliations and abstract. The full protocol has been submitted for publication and will be made available on HIFA as soon as it is published. Join HIFA to keep informed.

Further details and training will be provided and your help will be acknowledged.
